Travellers confused by hidden airline charges

Low-cost flights are often central to stag night plans, but an increasing number of customers are being stung by hidden airline charges, it has been claimed.

According to consumer website Which?, those jetting off to Europe to celebrate their final night of freedom are likely to encounter several unwanted surprises before they take to the air.

The group claimed that customers are now becoming confused and frustrated by hidden extras such as baggage and check-in costs, with almost three-quarters claiming that these charges should be included in the headline price.

A spokesperson for Which? Holiday said: "A huge majority of airline passengers want just one price for everything, with everything included in it."

She added that people fail to see why online check-in, which has been free for many years, is suddenly costing them extra.

The comments come after low-cost airline Ryanair revealed that it will remove its £10 airport check-in fee and introduce an online check-in fee of £5 per person on all new flight bookings.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19171555-ADNFCR
