Ryanair has worked hard to earn itself a reputation for low headline prices - and outlandish fees which often double the cost of the flight. Fans of the airline have worked hard to find creative ways around them. Some have been known to pack for a ski trip using hand luggage alone. Others send the suitcase by courier. And a savvy few applied for a Ryanair credit card to avoid the incredible £6 'admin' fee (which happens to be applied at the time of booking in much the same way as a booking fee) slapped on everyone else.

Now the airline has slammed the door on this loophole too.
