I have not flown for about ten years: I was terrified by the idea of trying to entertain small children cooped up in a plane. Now that everyone's grown up a bit, I'm trying to book some flights to Europe.
Booking flights has changed a lot since I last did it: there are a lot more options available. And now I'm booking four seats instead of one, I really need to keep the prices down so I'm looking at budget flights.
I was very surprised to find that the cheapest British Airways tickets seem to allow no hold luggage at all - just two small cabin bags. So surprised that I couldn't quite believe it was true. But that does indeed seem to be the case.
So I went back to budget airlines and found a good price going out on EasyJet and back on BMI. I presumed these would have hold luggage in the price but, scanning the terms and conditions for these airlines, I'm now to so sure.
The question then is: do budget tickets now commonly exclude any hold luggage at all? And does anyone know if EasyJet and BMI standard economy class tickets specifically do exclude hold luggage?
