Liquids in 'cabin' bags under new Ryanair rules

If you have not paid for Priority Bags and therefore know that your 'cabin bag' will in fact be transported in the hold, does this mean that you can put containers of over 100 ml of liquid in it?

Also, has Ryanair confirmed that the new rules will always apply - so that even if a flight is only half full and is therefore likely to have plenty of room for cabin bags, you will still have to put them in the hold if you haven't paid the extra fee.

You cannot carry non-compliant liquids in your carry-on bag through security, even if you expect it to be gate checked.

there has never been a rule that you cannot carry liquids over 100 ml onto the aircraft, be it in carry-on or in checked luggage.

the rule is only for AIRPORT security. purchase a bottle of something airside, and it matters not an iota as to how you bring it on the aircraft

and ryanair have confirmed that if you do not pay for priority, then your carry-on DOES go in the hold. anyway, ryanair have a full occupancy rate of the mid 90%

No - if your bag is gate-checked it will be with you right up until you board the flight. Any liquids over 100ml will be confiscated and binned at security. They aren't interested in whether you're flying Ryanair or not, it's the same rules for everyone.

Yep, if you try and take more than 100ml of liquids, you won't get further than security.

This would only work if Ryanair were intending for you to hand your cabin bag over at bag drop. If they’re taking them at the gate, it won’t work for the reasons the others have said.

TBH I’ve no idea where exactly they are taking the cabin bags for the hold, but suspect it will be at the gate

It's at the gate.

And, to get to the gate, one MUST pass through Security, which is separate from the carrier.

Good luck,

You're thinking of the Easyjet 'handsfree' service. You can have liquids for that because you check your bag and pay £4 BEFORE you go through security.

Ryanair is a no because of the reasons stated above. You'd still have to take your bag through security and it only gets taken at the gate.

Yes, that is how it is worded, but they have also added the opportunity to buy priority boarding up to 30mins prior to boarding -- via the App

Ryanair has a hands free option also. But you need to buy a checked bag and pay to check the carry on. Kind of expensive if you only want to take a bottle of shampoo.
