Further to the news item we released earlier this year, EasyJet do seem to have listened and made a concession to their instrument policy as they are now allowing musicians to bring an instrument up to 30 x 117 x 38 cm, including case, into the cabin and can go in an overhead locker.

The provision for this is that an 'up front' or 'extra leg room' seat is purchased. Small instruments (45 x 36 x 20) will be allowed into the cabin in a regular seat under their small cabin bag allowance. It remains that instruments such as a cello will need an additional seat. Many thanks to one of our members for alerting us to this change.

Further information on EasyJet’s cabin baggage policy for musical instruments can be found on their website, as well as their full baggage policy.
