It’s miles better, no more silly sized bags filling up the overhead and you can take a small bag with you

What is their bag policy?
Used them last year and was allowed to take only 1 tiny cabin bag
I don't think anything has actually changed except they now insist on putting your cabin bag in the hold when you get to the gate unless you've paid for priority (or whatever it's called), all sizes and weights etc. are the same.
New policy is excellent

it used to be 55x40x20, looks like I’ll need a new man bag or to pay an additional 24 euros per passenger

Read it again. You can still use the old bag AND have a second one, smaller. The only difference is, that uf you do not buy their Priority Boarding, bigger of your bags will go with hold luggage, free of charge.
What's the point of paying then if it goes free of charge on boarding??

you're paying to keep it in the cabin, frequent or light travellers (who keep their baggage with them) don't risk their luggage going missing and don't have to wait for the luggage to be put onto the belt on arrival.

But if you don't intend to keep it, don't pay for checked in luggage either and get everything for free!

I presume this will be for 'cabin' sized bags and not full blown suitcases.

Still, there's a flaw in their thinking. But it's excellent for me as I always pay for cabin luggage, now we can take 2 pieces each (3 kids can take 2 each too) and off we go for free.

You're still not getting it, the old rules were two bags one 55x40x20 and one 35x20x20 both these could be taken on board, the new rules are still the same size two bags it's just that the 55x40x20 bag will be placed in the hold (at the gate) unless you've paid for priority.

I finally get it skamen, Ryanair’s email had no mention of standard sized cabin bags (55x40x20) , that will now be put in hold as you board ,

only small 35x20x20 will be allowed on board unless you pay the extra fiver,
clearly an ingenious way to start charging for hand luggage.

The only thing now I dont get is that Ryanair will now be charged by airports to transfer bags into hold and onto conveyer belts at the other end, hence over the past 10-15 years low cost carriers have wanted passengers to take hand luggage only or charged high baggage costs to cover these groundfees
In reality things probably won't change that much, I've flown with Ryanair loads of times, if the flights are full and you're at the end of the queue then quite often they've said that the overhead lockers are full and the cabin bags will have to go in the hold, I think that if flights aren't full they will just let you take it on rather than putting it in the hold but this way more people will choose to pay so they will make more money!!
£50 charge if they decide your bag is too big and it has to go in the hold

another scam that hopefully backfires

They still use the conveyors anyway as there will always be folk check hold luggage in.

Airports charge by bag

Airports charge by bag


Fair enough, I assumed they just paid the same price regardless, With Ryanair though it wouldn't surprise me if they started to get passengers to load the planes for them, May be even fuel up!.
