    Two things:

    Firstly, you need to make sure you only have one bag, and it is a cabin bag, not something you think might fit in an overhead locker. The “one bag” rule is strictly enforced, and if it won’t fit in the metal measuring tray at the Gate, you will be charged for having it put in the hold.

    This is where you’ll find details of the size

    but this is the important bit – the charges for bags – you will pay 60 Euro at the Gate if it is too large.

    The flight I was on to Budapest (and back), there were Hungarian families with no clue, no English, and they were over a barrel when it came to the charges. The other people in the queue were trying to translate for them that they were being charged more for their bag than the airline ticket had cost them. Caveat Emptor, because it was lambs to the slaughter on this flight.

    Second thing is, unless you are very short you should go for an extra leg room seat – these are the rows 12 and 13 in the middle of the aircraft for the emergency exit. Obviously you can’t be travelling with kids, and need to be able bodied, but you get a lot more room here and the flight is bearable in these seats. You also get onto the aircraft first, which means you should find a space in the overhead lockers for your bag.
