Warning re Cabin Luggage

Went to Birmingham from Knock with Antler cabin case checked with tape size spot on ,checked weight 9KG. Allowed in cabin no problem going. On return charged £20for case owing to design 9document wallet) on front would not fit in to BMI baby's wire cage placed just where you hand in boarding card to enter aircraft. Gave them cash but they held me back waiting for receipt untill I was stressed to breaking point thinking I was going to miss my flight. Would not like any body else to be treated so badly.Be warned about the design of cabin luggage and the very bad way this is checked by airline..Your case needs to be less than allowed measurements to be able to get it through this tunnel wire cage.

Very annoying,can't help but feel that sometimes this sort of thing happens 'cos somebody is having a bad day,a couple of years ago we were coming back from Amsterdam with Easyjet when one of the girls at the actual departure gate was telling people that they couldn't take their cases on board while the girl the other side was letting similar items go!

....And another thing .. Ryan Air say on the booking confirmation that your carry on bag has to be a certain height , width and depth. We (Husband and me) stick by these rules and dont get the carry bag checked when we checked in . BUt when we come to board we see other passengers with much larger bags than ours and nobody from the airline says a word. I often think I will bring my bigger bag ... but the day I do that will be the time I will get stopped.

This occurs because of the online check in and up to the point of boarding - nobody has had a look at these bags - If ryan Air want to make this a legal requiremtnt then ALL staff should follow the same rules - my head gets puggled with it all !!! :-)
