But than you will have to pay for every piece of luggage...for a drink...for something else like getting a smile of the stewardess.
I booked flights to Ireland with Aer Lingus...even they send me an email yesterday that I have to pay 8 euro for every piece of luggage! Or 'just' 4 euro if you check in online the day before.
Wow, service man!
Do u have to pay anything, for hand luggage?
I am only taking hand luggage, in future, if they are going to charge that much. I can buy the liquid items, in the country I am travelling to.
No, only the luggage you'll have to check in. Handluggage is max 6 kilos though, every extra kilo is 8 euro!
I fly aer lingus to Ireland, at least once per year.
I hope they are making the tickets cheaper, if they are adding on these extra luggage costs.

It has return flight for around 90 euro including all taxes from Amsterdam to Dublin and Cork. Pretty cheap I think for a none budget airline.
That sounds like a good price.
I usually 150 Euros, including taxes, from Munich.
I just flew to paris last week with aerlingus (tickets were booked in november) and even though the new baggage charges only came in in december it was backdated!!!! so when we got to the airport we had to pay extra for our luggage - same thing in paris coming home. its €8 per flight - not return!
Also, there is a sale on in ryanair at the moment - extended untill monday it should have ended at midnight last night- great offers, I always fly ryanair it makes such a dent in the price of a holiday! Do book in advance, but if you see expensive flights wait a couple of weeks because they more than likely will have a sale and the price could drop €50 - €100 - happened me before and it wasnt nice!!
ryanair are only cheap when you suit your own travel to there terms & conditions - as in there dates and times.
often they talk about 1 euro flights, if the idea of flying in at midnight into a big city appeals to you when all transport has stopped then great. if you like flying at 6am then fine.
however if you dont fly at the recommended times to get the deal then they happen to be the more expensive airline out there.
if your travel destination is not so popular then its not so bad it can actually work wonderfully well. they also got some nice new new planes were all there old planes were falling a part and have had many near misses...actually the whole flight aviation is surprised that there hasnt been any modern / recent time crashes.
anyway its all a very good marketing campaign and they have one of the best business men running there businesses!!!
i would look into other airlines too, like i say, they can be very expensive at times.
eg at christmas time when i was flying from london to dublin, i wanted to fly out within a few hours, ryanair were charging £180 and british midlands were charging £90!
