Do they allow free hand luggage (a small backpack for the overhead compartment) like EasyJet do?

One cabin bag per passenger* weighing up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm, plus 1 small bag up to 35 x 20 x 20 cms.

Due to cabin space limitations only 90 cabin bags (55 x 40 x 20 cms) can be carried in the cabin, any remainder will be carried free of charge in the aircraft hold.

I flew with them a couple of years ago. It was the first time, and it will be the only time. :angry:

These are the correct size limits, there is also a weight limit of 10kgs.

I flew with the last year, and I will try avoid them when ever I can. I prefer easyjet, there is much less control. I heard with ryanair if even a wheel or something sticks out from the box they will make you pay.

I've never had any issues with Ryanair. Only times I was delayed was in heavy fog Prague.

 

The biggest thing I like about Ryanair is that their aircraft are all modern 737-800's. When I flew with them their average fleet age was under 3 years old. Compared to when I flew with BMI their 737-200's looked like they were ready to be scrapped.

 

To be fair I don't think I ever paid more than £50 quid for a return flight to the Czech Republic with them and my best was 2 people and a suitcase from Prage to Birmingham for £16.

Funnily enough I have, when I wrote my previous post I'd actually written this whole thing about how I preferred Wizzair because of the planes they used, service etc but figured it was getting off topic.

 

I would recommend Wizzair over Ryanair. Cant beat purple planes!
