RYANAIR HAS CUT its second free bag policy, stating that it is causing “boarding and flight delays”.

Ryanair had allowed passengers to carry one cabin bag along with an additional small bag, such as a backpack or shopping bag, for free.

However, the airline has announced that from November it will axe the scheme because too many customers are availing of the service, which is causing boarding and flight delays.

All non-priority customers will be asked to check their second bag – bags with wheels and anything bigger than 10kg – into the hold at the boarding gate.

So today we’re asking: will Ryanair axing its second free carry-on bag make you stop flying with the airline?
