OK, I'm just editing my previous post as it looks like Trunkis are not allowed on Ryan air as they are 20.5cm deep, not 20cm as Ryan Air requests. The Trunki site is full of the 'suitable for hand luggage etc' but it looks like it's not!! Has anyone ever taken one on Ryan Air? Do they measure it or place it in a measuring thing??
I would hate to have to leave it behind if I take it.
Hiya, I'm hoping some of you frequent Ryan Air travellers can help me out. My mom has very kindly offered to pay for me and my 3 children to go to Spain with her. Unfortunately this time of year means that we can only fly Ryan Air. I have always managed to avoid them in the past as I know they are very strict when it comes to limits.
Are they really as strict as I have heard?? We are only allowed 15 kg in a bag and I can't afford to take more than 2 bags. I believe that I can take the buggy (although I am hoping that a double one won't be a problem) free but really don't want to have to pay £60 to take 3 carseats. I know when we have flown with other companies they have let us off with the car seats and I am aware that with easy jet that a 2 year old can use a car seat on the plane. Would I get away with using the car seat on the pushchair and saying it is part of the buggy??
With 3 children under 5 travelling with me I am wondering if it is really worth the hassle and cost. I will not hire the car seat out there as I have done that before and it was filthy and rusty!!! (and yes I complained I the only refund I got was 50 euro off my next booking which conveniently they never have availablity when I try and book with them!!)
