Hi. Does anyone know if Easyjet lets you fly with boots as part of your hand baggage allowance? I think the bag is ok in terms of dimensions and weight, but will it be deemed an offensive weapon?? I heard recently about someone who wasn't allowed to take a ski helmet through Grenoble airport, so if anyone knows, please let me know.
I'd have thought if its your only bag then it would be fine. Sadly gone are the days when yo used to be allowed to wear your ski boots on the plane to get round weight restrictions. Some excuse about not being able to exit the plane quickly in the event of an emergency ,pah.
It is actually smaller than the rucksack that we're taking as other hand baggage. I know I could check it in as hold baggage but it will cost me £12 each way - and we have 2 "unused" items of hand baggage.
You are allowed: one standard piece of hand baggage to maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm, and this bag is within that allowance - so unless boots are banned (no mention on website that I can find) I should be ok???
Thought about wearing them...but on that one I agree with Easyjet (!) and don't fancy blisters before I wear my lovely new shiny boots for first time (Snow and Rock Sale started today!)
We flew Easyjet to and from Geneva this year, with a ski bootbag as handluggage - no comment made either in Liverpool or Geneva. We would have paid for it if necessary, but it wasn't It may be the luck of the draw or who is on duty on the day though
its weighed as part of your luggage now. Careful cos my friend and i ended up paying £50 excess baggage as we didnt know. If you buy a ski boarding bag and put luggage skis and boots in it and pay the £16 for ski carriage..you dont have to pay excess baggage
