I don't like it. It's a way to advertise lower fares because this is essentially a hidden charge. It is very arbitrary, one person weighs 50 kg and another person weighs 90 kgs. They pay the same for a ticket. The person who weighs 50 kgs has luggage that is 10 kgs. The person weighing 90 kgs has no luggage.
Transporting the 60 kgs will be more expensive than the 90 kgs.
Makes no sense whatsoever.
Not to mention that the charge is 8 euros or so for the first 20 kgs of luggage, but the 21st kg will cost 8 euros additionally.
How can the first 20 kgs be so cheap, and the 21st so expensive?
Because it is all arbitrary. In fact all pax pay for their average weight (70-75kg) + 20 kg luggage + 5 kg hand-luggage already with their ticket. Then there is an extra 'surcharge' for baggage already paid for.
It is only when the pax takes that 21st kg with him/her that you pay per kg.
I prefer to fly with an airline that has no hidden charges and doesn't treat their customers like utter fools. I choose companies that have no hidden charges and treat their customers as utter fools
Seriously though. I don't condone this kind of business. I'd fly Vueling before Ryanair anytime though.
