Ryanair announced an effort to encourage travelers to check bags. After November 1st, and for the "basic" fare, you can only bring on board one "small" bag. "Small" is defined as maximum size 35cm (13.8 inches) by 20cm (7.9 inches) by 20cm (7.9 inches). Anything larger will be placed in the hold free of charge. If you pay for priority boarding, then you can still bring on board two bags. The details are at https://www.travelandl​eisure.com …orts/ryanair-baggage-fees (external link).

Somewhat related, this originally came from an article about not leaving your passport in a bag that might now end up in the hold due to be being oversize. In some instances you would have to retrieve the bag after going through passport control.

Has Ryanair starting to ask passengers to pay for toilet paper in the restrooms?

And even if there is regrettably no standard carry-on size wordlwide, what prevents them from offering enough room in the overhead storage space for one carry-on per passenger in an acceptable size (in the line of 22 x 14 x 9 in) , the way other companies do it?

If they did not focus on trying to offer flights at ridiculously low-prices, they would also not have pushed their passengers to cram as much as they could into 2 carry-ons in order to save the price they had to pay for checked-in luggage. With all the extras they have, if you really tot everything up, you will often find out that you can fly for the same FINAL price or even cheaper with regular companies. You wil also not land in the middle of nowhere on a second-tier airport, wasting time to reach yoiur final destination with ground transport.

I really hate these "little tricks" budget airlines play all the time. Have just recently booked a flight with easyjet and I can't remember how many times I've been asked if I want "addons" to my trip. Some even asked you to pay to choose a seat or else you might end up sitting 20 rows away from your family.

Unfortunately, it is not feasible to cut a square hole in the bottom of the plane travelling at 550mph, like trains used to do for toilet facilities.

I miss the ol' days of just walking into an airport, showing a boarding pass, walking right to the plane, getting on and have just 2 or 3 large seats with large storage above, no extra fees, a nice little 3 course meal in-transit. Those were the days, uncomplicated and easy and actually fun. I hate traveling now.

Yeah, the extremist terrorists have made life worse for the rest of the world...mission accomplished.

But the rest of the blame goes to the airlines, for cutting benefits while giving passengers the illusion of reducing fares.
Instead now we pay $8 for a bag lunch, $25 for luggage checked, $250 for changing flights to get home sooner when our business finishes sooner.
At the same time we the consumers share the blame for instilling that action by the airlines.

Just a big skybus these days unless you pay the price. Travelled to New Zealand in business class, that was a very nice trip.
