Ryanair is changing its check-in policy - but only for people who haven't paid extra to reserve a seat

Holidaymakers who've booked a flight with Ryanair this summer will have a shorter check-in window than they've previously been used to!
The budget airline is looking to cut its check-in window from four days down to 48 hours.
That is, unless you've paid extra to reserve a seat.
The new rules come into effect for departures from the 13th June onwards, but if you've forked out the extra £4 for an assigned seat, you'll still be able to check in up to two months ahead of departure.
Although this was already the case with the four-day check-in window, it does mean less flexibility for families on holiday; for example, if you've booked a week's holiday you won't be able to check in to all of your flights and have it ticked off the to-do list.
Instead, you'll have to check-in from your hotel using the app or on the Ryanair website. Of course, you could just head to the airport and check-in there, but Ryanair will charge you €55/£55 for the privilege, unless you have a Flexi-Plus ticket where check-in is free of charge.
The airline has already contacted all passengers who booked flights and need to be notified of the change.
Ryanair also has a firm message for passengers who won't be happy with the shorter check-in window; it's a case of either accepting the new policy, or you can cancel your flight and they will refund you fully within 5 days of your having been notified on the 14th May.
A spokesperson for Ryanair said in a statement: "Standard (free) online check-in will be available from 48 hours to 2 hours pre-departure for all flights from 13th June onwards, in order to increase the choice and time available to customers who choose to pay for reserved seats.
"All Ryanair customers may buy a reserved seat online, both on the Ryanair.com website and mobile app from the time of booking up to 2 hours pre-departure and these customers can check in online anytime they so wish between 60 days and up to 2 hours before the scheduled departure time of their flight.
"All affected customers booked to travel from 13th June have been contacted by email and those who do not wish to accept this check-in policy change can cancel and request a full refund within 5 days (of this 14th May notification) after which the change will be regarded as implicitly accepted."
It marks another significant change in policy for the airline, who also changed the rules regarding their cabin bag allowance earlier this year .
The new policy means that only Priority Boarding passengers will be allowed to take two pieces of hand luggage on board for free - everyone else is limited to one, unless they fork out the extra fiver for the Priority tickets when booking.
If you do have two pieces of hand luggage, you'll be forced to put your second bag in the hold, although this will be free of charge.
