Effective 2nd July 2013, easyJet is introducing a new cabin bag guarantee in order to try and alleviate the problem of a lack of cabin space on board their aircraft – and good luck to them!
Provided a passenger has a cabin bag which measures no more than, 50 x 40 x 20 cm, including wheels and handles, easyJet will guarantee that it will always travel on board their aircraft, either in an overhead locker, or under the seat in front of them.
Passengers may still bring one slightly larger cabin bag on board (up to the existing maximum size of 56 x 45 x 25 cm including wheels and handles), however, on busy flights the crew may have to put bags of this size into the aircraft’s hold.
As always, there are some exceptions, easyJet Plus card holders, Flexi Fare and Upfront and Extra Legroom passengers may still bring one piece of cabin baggage up to 56 x 45 x 25. HOWEVER, they must use easyJet Plus Speedy Boarding to board the aircraft first in order to secure an overhead locker!
We (GTM) will be interested to hear from customers about how they get on with this new policy.
