Watch | Man Dodges Ryanair Baggage Policy


Share this article


This guy really didn't want to conform to Ryanair's new baggage policy!

The latest changes to Ryanair's baggage policy have caused much controversy and inconvenience for holidaymakers using the airline.

One Ryanair customer decided to get creative with the hopes to beat the new rules and regulations.

Lee Cimino was flying to Belfast with Ryanair for a birthday night out, he found an old coat and we'll let you watch what happens in the video below;

Genius, a few alterations later and he could fit his all of the clothes for his trip away in the lining of his coat!

Speaking to the Press Association, Lee said:

 

We got to Manchester Airport at about 6am and I didn’t get as many funny looks as I thought I would. My mate said I just looked like a hipster! The coat only had a few clothes in it and I just put it in the tray like you normally would. I don’t know how close I came but as I understand it, I’m not doing anything wrong with wearing the coat. While some people might question the time and effort required to pull off a stunt like this, Lee thinks that "it strikes a chord with people as everyone has had an experience with the airlines. I’d encourage more people to try it, otherwise how far will they go? As I say, this is not me having a go at Ryanair. I love them, it’s just raising a point.

 

The airline released the statement after the video went viral which read:

 

Thanks to our larger free small bag allowance (40% bigger) and cheaper checked-in bag option (£8 for a 10kg bag), Ryanair customers can bring all they need without having to board the aircraft looking like the Michelin Man or Joey from Friends. We’ve received lots of positive feedback from customers and airports across Europe on our new bag policy, which is leading to faster check-in, security and boarding, and improved punctuality.
