Easyjet to enforce hand baggage rules

Got this email today :
-----
Hand Baggage

From April 5th we have updated our pricing policy for hold luggage and for oversized cabin baggage that needs to be checked into the hold.

The following charges apply:
At the airport check-in desk: If you purchase a bag to be checked into the hold and/or we notice that your cabin bag exceeds the maximum allowed dimensions, you will be charged £25 per bag
At the boarding gate: If you go directly to the boarding gate and your one permitted item of cabin baggage exceeds the maximum allowed dimensions you will be charged £40 and your bag will be checked into the hold
Remember: easyJet allows one item of hand baggage into the cabin per person; maximum dimensions are 56 x 45 x 25 cm.

To keep our fares low, be able to board the plane as quickly as possible and ensure your comfort onboard, if you bring more than one piece of hand baggage we'll check the extra piece into the hold. Hand bags, briefcases, laptops and laptop bags are all counted as one piece, so if you have a trolley and, for example, an additional hand bag or laptop bag you'll be asked to put those items into your trolley bag. If you can't consolidate your cabin baggage into one single item, one of your bags will be checked into the hold and we will have to charge you £40. We do this to ensure that we don't delay the boarding process and bring everyone to their destination on time.

To get the best price pre-book your hold baggage online. You can do this when booking your flight or by adding it to an existing booking via my easyJet.com.

I can see there may be some revolting EZY passengers this summer season !

just follow the T&C's you agree to when you purchase a ticket, including the 1 piece of hand baggage and at the correct dimensions and you shouldn't have a problem, the problem is people who dont check their cases or ignore the 1 piece rule... thats when you run into problems

Agreed ! We follow the EZY rules but it is frustrating to see the other PAX totally ignoring them and getting away with it, especially when retuning from holiday trips.

With the MOL mob everyone knows they will be hammered - now Easyjet will be trying similar tactics and I can foresee many issues with the bucket and spade families this year.

Consistency and a little common sense will be needed otherwise flights could be delayed due to rule enforcement.

Wonder will this be followed by pages of angst and Daily Mail type comments about EZY ripping customers off.................probably not.

Why is EZY always a follower rather than a leader ?

T & C's state:

In addition to the “Standard Hand Baggage” you may also carry:
(a) one of the following: An overcoat; an umbrella, or a shawl; and
(b) one standard size carrier bag of goods purchased from the departure airport.
I do hope that handling agents are aware of (b). Perhaps Easy should remind all agents of this allowed, additional hand baggage and to communicate it to their staff.

Something needed to be done. As others have mentioned, if you follow the rules then everything will be ok. Think that you can get away with it and you maybe disappointed. Thats the risk you take. At the end of the day, Easyjet's cabin baggage allowance is far from stingy so there really isn't any excuse.

Someone in a previous post mentioned potential problems with bucket and spade families. From experience, this group of passengers are the ones who are most likely to follow the rules word for word. They usually turn up at the airport with plenty of time to spare, worry about being overweight in the first place and typically only bring small pieces of handbaggage. Indeed, travel on a TFS, HER etc etc and you will see how empty the overhead lockers are when compared to a CPH, CDG, AMS etc.

It is the City destinations that are often the problem. The combination of the mini breakers who can usually make do with just hand luggage and the business/corporate pax who wants a fast exit at the other end.

In fairness to EZY, they have sent an e.mail notification to passengers with existing bookings to highlight changes to the baggage policy. No excuse for turning up and pleading ignorance.

On another topic - pabely - can we have a version of your 17:26 post in plain English? What does that message mean???

SHED.

The first ever EZY aircraft to be broken up, all others were sold on. Should have been ferried to Kemble today @ 08:45z.

Wow! She's barely even 7 years old and being scrapped

Why? Especially when theres so many older 733s still about and a more fuel efficient aircraft is going so early! Im guessing more money to be made from the scrapman than selling/leasing?

Most of the other 737-7 have gone WFU to Dublin, it's just that this is the first to be broken up. I assume the number of cycles they have done does not make them attactive to any other buyer.

I suspect the engines make them very attractive to certain buyers in today's market where I believe -7s are in relatively short supply. Makes the airframe into one expensive engine stand!

YEs but they were sold on surely. A SEVEN year old B737NG for scrap? Did someone bend this airframe surely?

Don't call me surely.

I have a similar view as 7 years is nothing for an aircraft unless something is wrong.
