Easyjet charges for second bags
A budget airline is to charge passengers an extra fee for putting a second bag in aircraft holds.

Easyjet said the increased security measures at UK airports was to blame for the move.

It will cost passengers 10 to put additional luggage in the hold on check-in or 5 if paid in advance.

Spokesman Toby Nicholl said: "We've seen in the past three weeks an explosion in the amount of baggage put in holds and it is delaying check-ins."

He added: "We're trying to incentivise passengers to take one bag to reduce delays."
