For all flight only bookings, booked from the 4th March 2009, no free allowance will be provided for checked in luggage (Hold luggage). Passengers will still receive 5kg of hand luggage free on all flights. Any passengers wishing to check in luggage, up to 20kg, can do so for a small fee as shown in the table below.

Passengers who are booked in Premium will be provided with a hold luggage allowance of 30kg and a hand luggage allowance of 5kg.

You can now add hold luggage by passenger, which was not possible before. So, for example, if you have four passengers on the booking and only two wish to check in hold luggage then this can be added. This cannot be done, however by flight, so if you have passengers on a return flight the baggage is added for both the outbound and inbound flights.

Baggage prices are as follows:

Short haul & medium haul flights (Flight duration of up to 6 hours) Long Haul Flights (Flight duration of 6 hours or more)
During Booking Journey £8.00/10 per person per flight £15.00 per person per flight
Amend Offline or via Call centre £15.00/19 per person per flight. Please call 0871 230 2406 £17.50 per person per flight. Please call 0871 230 2406

Please note if your booking is confirmed and you wish to add hold luggage as an amendment via the website or customer help desk this can only be added OUTSIDE of 7 days before your first departing flight.

If passengers have not pre booked hold luggage before they travel they will be charged per bag at check in. Charges applied will vary by airline.

got really annoyed with these people last yr, had a cabin bag, bought as a cabin bag, sold as a cabin bag, but it was a hard cover and would not fit in their measure thing because it was hard cover, they made me pay £12 for it, when I got off the plane I saw loadss of other people with similar bags asked if they had paid and they said no, also the stewardesses had the same type!

To be fair, it can cost a heck more travelling on a bus or train.

£21 for flights up the country is not bad at all!

I feel sorry for you being picked on. You must have got the jobs worth check in lady?
Try not to let them see your hand luggage when checking in. Just be a bit sneaky that is how the others got through heh

I really hate that part of travelling by plane. Having to go through check out and customs. I always get searched. Metal detectors love me : )
The new charges don't surprise me at all. They are just making themselves look cheap by doing this i am going to view them as i do Ryan air or Easy jet.
