Last time I flew from Dublin Airport with Aer Lingus in August 2019, they sent me a text saying that if I wanted, I could pay €5 and check-in my cabin bag.
Do they still offer this? I would like to avail of this option again. I can't see anything mentioned on the website. I don't know if this is something they routinely offered, or only under specific conditions (e.g. fully booked flights where there might not be room for everyone's cabin baggage).
This is the wording of the text, which I received approximately 15 hours before departure:
Dear Guest, we invite you to start your journey stress free and take advantage of cabin baggage check-in for EUR5.00 by credit or debit card at Dublin Airport. We hope this offer will make your experience in the airport easier as you'll save time and avoid the stress of unpacking and repacking at security. Simply go to Desk 32 at Dublin Airport with your boarding pass, check in your cabin bag for EUR5.00, proceed through security to your boarding gate and collect your bag at your destination.
