Servisair staff at Liverpool John Lennon Airport are being rewarded for catching Ryanair customers who exceed their baggage allowance. The airline offer staff a reward of 50p for every bag they discover slightly over Ryanair’s baggage or allowance or if the size of the bags are deemed to be too large for Ryanair’s overhead lockers, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The bonus is paid after staff reach a target of 10 bags per week which triggers the bonus payments. One Servisair member of staff commented “They brought in this new rule a few weeks ago. We’re pleased to be honest. It means we can earn a few extra quid. If I now see a bag that could be on the borderline I say, let’s have a look if that’s too big for the overhead lockers. Whereas previously we might have let borderline baggage through, now we’ll be more stringent.”
It does appear that the travelling public are being targetted again by Ryanair and it does beg the question; just how low-cost is a low-cost airling in reality?
