Some might argue Ryanair created a rod for its own back with its cabin baggage policy, but checking in baggage at the gate has become a tedious inevitability on budget, short-haul routes.

In fact, barely a flight departs without gate staff having to resort to begging customers to give up their hand luggage and have it placed in the hold.

 

So perhaps it’s time airlines gave passengers a free 10kg / 55x40x20cm luggage allowance on arrival at airports, which can be deposited through a simple, automated baggage drop process instead of trying to fleece them through spurious fees - and inflict infuriating delays on weary travellers moments before they board.
