OK, they have changed their baggage FAQs page AGAIN. As of early Febuary, they had one nearly the same as the current page, but saying an extra bag MIGHT be allowed in the cabin, but might also have to go in the hold if they didnt have enough space, that luggage in the hold would cost £xx (I forget how much), and that you wouldnt know until you got to the gate which was going to happen. We sent our luggage with the grandparent's who were driving over to Spain. TBH, I feel sad you have to defend such a crappy airline.
You really don't have a clue do you? You are entitled to 2 bags in the base price. One you can take into the cabin, the other goes into the hold. You are then entirely free to choose or not to add on extras such as choice of seat, priority boarding (which lets you take the second bag into the cabin), extra bags in the hold, insurance etc. If you just want to get from A to B with 2 bags, the advertised price is all you need to pay.
You have just contradicted yourself. RA's website doesnt help; in one place it says you can carry an extra bag that may, or may not need to go in the hold; on another page it says you have to pay to carry an extra bag. I only flew RA, because that is what was booked for us; my own searches in the past have always found the final RA price to be more than flying a premium airline like KLM or Lufthansa (or Air France - but they keep losing my luggage, so I dont fly them any longer). Either way, I was more impressed with Jet2, for all the talk of the seats being smaller, I (all 2 metres and 150KG of me), found them to be more comfortable AND to have more space, than the RA seats. What they have taken away in pitch, they have more than gained in the reduction of seat padding - and by some miracle, made the seat more comfortable to sit in.
No, 2nd bag is included for free, you only pay if you want to take it on board. We flew last month and to be honest it was much better without the scrum to find space for your bags
You only get the 2nd bag if you stump up extra money; they may also (at their discretion) chuck it in the hold.
