Matt Bagwell, co-founder of SEVENFEETAPART, says that the baggage journey should start at home. “Plan ahead, he suggests.”
“Lay out everything that you think that you’ll need to take and then ask yourself, “Am I really going to need this?” In a recent survey of our customers, 62% said that they packed too much when they travelled. So when you survey the piles on the floor, consider what you can jettison.”
Passengers should also check with their chosen airline to make sure they are in-the-know about how their cabin bag restrictions.
While easyJet boasts no cabin weight restriction, but a strict size guide of 56 x 45 x 25 cm, Ryanair dutifully limit passengers to bags no heavier than 10kg. These limitations will change across the board depending on your chosen airline, so be sure to check before packing.
