Budget airline Ryanair is cutting the number of bag fee options it offers from -WAIT FOR IT - 108 to just six, from today.
The airline said the new tariff reduces checked-in bag fees for some 92 per cent of its customers.
The changes, from today, will delight passengers on domestic flights of under two hours duration as bag fees reduced by 50 per cent, while travellers on all other flights under three hours will expect to save up to 17 per cent.

"These bag changes are in addition to our best-in-class cabin bag allowance, offering two free carry-on bags, and we’ll continue to offer the biggest and best choice of destinations, with the most on-time flights and a fantastic onboard experience, as we grow our fleet, traffic and routes – and all on the lowest fares," said Ryanair marking chief Kenny Jacobs.
Ryanair's latest attempt to erase its image as offering low cost flights with corresponding levels of customer service follows the company's recent pledge to reduce ticket prices, despite missing profit forecasts in the year to 31 March.
