AER LINGUS HIKE BAGGAGE PRICES BY 40% – YET AGAIN!
Smart does not fly Aer Lingus if you have a bag to check in! Did you see the press release on this one? We bet you didn’t – because there wasn’t one. It was slipped in under cover of darkness last night. Again.
Aer Lingus are great at making noise about their “Smart” fares. However, while they might offer attractive fares with one hand, they are picking your pocket with the other. For the second time in 4 months, they have jacked up the prices of a checked-in bag and hoped you wouldn’t notice. The last price hike was from €15 to €25 (each way for Spain) – an incredible increase of 67%. Now it is up from €25 to €35 another massive 40% bringing the increase in the cost bags since last November to an eye-watering 133%.
