EasyJet has announced a ‘guaranteed’ cabin baggage allowance which is 37 per cent below the maximum size allowed – because its packed planes can’t always fit passengers’ luggage on-board.
The budget airline currently allows luggage to be taken into the cabin if it’s below the maximum size of 56cm by 45cm by 25cm – a total of 63 litres per bag.
This will continue to be the maximum cabin allowance. But from July 2, easyJet is cutting the dimensions for baggage that is guaranteed for the cabin down to 50cm by 40cm by 20cm – including handles, pockets and wheels – to a total of just 40 litres. There is no weight limit on cabin baggage.
