Travelling on easyJet and the seat tickets are cheaper than the cost of putting a bag in the hold.

Can I book a seat and put the suitcase on it?


Short answer, NO. Because EasyJet does not describe this as a possibility anywhere publicly. Also, since it would be difficult to secure a standard suitcase, the crew should object.

However, YES, if the 'suitcase' is actually a cello. This is specifically described in EasyJet's baggage terms: Musical Instruments

  • "If You are making a Booking online at easyJet.com and wish to purchase a seat for a cello please add an additional seat during the online booking process and use the passenger name MR SEAT CELLO" :)

    Thank you - now set me off googling cello cases. Too late for this trip but something that could come in useful in the future. I am hoping that that the case doesn't have to contain a cello.

    @guest "woops, I accidentally mistook my clothes for my cello. Simple mistake, happens all the time."
