Dear MEL Topic Readers,

EasyJet to charge for overhead luggage lockers

Unlike major airlines such as United Airlines, British Airways, or Singapore Airlines, low-cost carriers fly passengers at lower fares without conventional services or amenities that major airlines provide free of charge. They usually fly point-to-point, short-haul routes mainly for leisure passengers. To fly cheaper, passengers are often required to pay a penalty for a change or cancellation of the booked flight and additional fees for inflight catering and drinks, pillows, blankets, or headsets. Also, it is quite a common practice to charge fees on excess or even any check-in luggage. However, carry-on luggage within certain dimensions set by the airline has always been free of charge, as long as it is put in the overhead bin or under the seat. Now, a British multinational low-cost airline EasyJet is going to prohibit the passengers to use the overhead bin unless they are seated in the seats at higher fares. In other words, passengers who want to carry luggage with them that won’t fit under the seat will have to pay a higher airfare or check in the luggage before boarding.

Well, economy and convenience don’t always seem to coincide in the cabin.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about the economy of air travel.
