easyJet hand luggage restrictions

easyJeteasyJet is one of Europe’s most popular budget airlines, carrying 6.4 million passengers to 32 different countries across 755 different routes.

As everyone was getting used to the changes, it was all scrapped and now regular passengers are not guaranteed to keep their luggage even if the bag is 50x40x20cm.
