The wheels on the casegoround and round

Ryanair got in the news again this week (BBC) and for a change I think I sort of agree with one of their policies. Sort of.

Basically they want passengers to check wheeled suitcases into the hold rather than have them in the cabin. I have never flown with Ryanair, but I have been on Easyjet enough to get thoroughly fed up with the amount of crap that people seem to think they just can’t do without for a few hours. As far as I am concerned you take hand luggage with you and, by definition, if it has wheels on it then its not hand luggage.

Mind you, I am not so sure about the exception for priority boarding customers. Priority boarding must be one of the biggest cons because as far as I can see there is no limit to how many people can pay that extra. I have seen Easyjet flights where nearly everybody was a priority boarding customer so effectively they were back where they started.
