    I’ve noticed since the pandemic that the likes of Ryanair and Aer Lingus have completely stopped checking bags at the gate. Seems the days of the yellow stickers are gone. Am I being a mug paying extra to bring a 10kg bag onboard if they aren’t even enforcing it anymore?

    I don't think you'd get away with the "small, under seat, one bag" rule if you had a10kg bag or case with you. (Although maybe you would, I'd love if someone would try it and then we'd know!)

    But equally I haven't seen anyone checking bag sizes for a very long time, so buying a case that's the exactly right measurements to the cm seems unnecessary.

    As long as your bag/case will fit in the overhead locker, anything seems to go these days.

    I bring a 50l rucksack bag with me, I'm fairly sure it wouldn't fit in the cage they used to use, but I've never once been challenged.

    I did Ryanair from the continent to spain and back there at the weekend. They were being strict on both sides on the cabin bag and were making people pay to check it in or bring it with them if they had a rolly bag but not prority

    What is obvious is that they are not strict on the size of small rucksacks so long as it looks like itll fit underneath - but thats sensible because the size rule is there in order to free up overhead space for people who NEED to put their sh1t above.

    Jackets and wee bags do not belong above in the lockers

    Aer Lingus allow bags to be checked in as standard now so the majority of people select that option. They did stop a couple of people I was on a flight with bringing their bags on board as they hadn’t paid for them. They didn’t want to pay so the bags were marked for stowing
