No More Unchecked Wheelies Allowed Free On Ryan Air


As airlines keep cramming in additional seats to bring in more money, passengers will not only be squeezed in the smaller spaces. Additional dollars from their wallets will be squeezed out.

Ryan Air now limits carry-ons to smaller, soft bags and backpacks that fit under seats. If you plan to fly Ryan Air and other airlines with the same restrictions, always be sure of the latest bag requirements. If you don’t want to pay the ever-growing fees for checking luggage, scan the ads for those you are permitted to carry aboard free.

When Your Flight Ends, Be Ready To Hit The Aisle And Exit PDF Print E-mail


This happens too frequently to your travel4seniors.com editor. It’s irritating when passengers who wait until it's their turn to leave the plane, then block the aisle. They always do it while gathering belongings they should have grabbed immediately after the plane parked.

If you’re not in a hurry to deplane, there are people behind you who have a short window of time to get to their next flight or airport pick-up. In other words, if you don’t need to rush to deplane, get the hell out of the way of those who do.
