Default Rip off airlines

Booked a flight from Eire to the UK with Ryanair and have to now pay for checked-in baggage (12 euro per bag). I can understand it with Ryanair as they do pretty cheap flights.

Just got an email from Aer Lingus and they too charge for checked-in baggage.

Are most UK/Eire based airlines now doing this?

Bloody rip off, as i said somewhere the other day, my flight was £2.94 one way and it ends up costing over £100 by the time you have added on surcharges taxes etc. They charge for hold baggage, pre booking seats, booking on-line, the list is endless, will just have to make sure I don't have excess or god knows what the charge for that will be

if you arrive faster,there is a surcharge... if you arrive late, there's the same surcharge and a penalty... and if you dare change to another airline,they'll come after you and your family...
Oh yeahhhh...

Well you won't need to go unless you buy some of their over-inflated priced drinks as they don't come free any more either!!

Don't think the plane gets that high before coming back down!

If memory serves me well, there's not much room to do anything on that flight.
