With most low cost airlines you have to pay for everything these days. We checked luggage in and booked two suitcases at 20kg each and if you're slightly over, you will have to remove some items to make it the weight you booked. I'd strongly recommend investing in a bag weigher. We've got one and it's brilliant! Couldn't be without it now. (Get yours here & here!).
What I do like about Easyjet is there's no weight limit on hand luggage, but the bag does have to be the size they say online. Both at Gatwick and Alicante airports the staff were very strict with the hand luggage. Both ways, while queueing up to board, the staff would walk down the line and if ladies had a handbag too, they made you squeeze it into your wheelie bag. I also noticed they were checking the size of wheelie bags, in the size checker thingy-me-jig! So be careful, make sure you're within limits!
Again, both ways at the boarding gate, they were asking people if they had any bags they would mind checking in to the hold, no charge. I'm guessing to reduce the amount of cabin baggage, as it's always a squeeze. (Maybe it's a way to check your bag in without paying, hehe. Food for thought).

Overall though, I though Easyjet were really good. The Cabin Crew both ways were friendly and professional. The seats aren't the most comfortable, but for a two hour flight they're fine. I don't know if I could cope on a longer flight though, haha. The seats don't have the recline feature anymore. I've heard about some other airlines removing this. At first I thought it was a stupid idea, but since flying recently, I actually think it's a good idea. As the seats are quite tight to start with and space is limited, the last thing you want is the seat in front to recline and leave you with zero space!
They offered a good range of food and drink and I didn't find the prices too over inflated (maybe I've lived in Dubai too long, haha) and I was impressed with the duty free magazine. Some great products and actually better then Emirates duty free.
Have you flown on Easyjet recently? Love to know your thoughts on them!
