Passengers spoke of their anger at being 'ripped off' at Stansted Airport today over the new Ryanair baggage charge which came in after they had booked their flights.
A children's football team heading to Dublin are among those caught out by the fees, facing charges of up to £400 they had not budgeted for.
Ten youngsters and parents with St Joseph's Youth Side, in Harrow, will have to pay out after the changes came in on yesterday.
Selina McManus from Watford was taking her son Dylan, 10, to Dublin on tour.
The 33-year-old from Hertfordshire said: 'It has cost me £40 and if you look in total it will cost the entire team £200 each way. I just feel like I have been ripped off, it doesn't feel great.'
From November 1 the airline no longer allows passengers to take a small suitcase in the hold for free, forcing them to pay a minimum of £8 for any bag that won't fit under the seat in front.
Rozhin Amini , 30, was heading home to Germany today after holidaying in the UK.
While queuing at Stansted, she said: 'Ryanair has always done things like this, it's okay if you know in advance – but we didn't.
'We booked back in September and none of this had come in, we've had to pay an extra £10. Luckily me and my friend were able to put two bags in one.
'You just have to expect Ryanair to get you to pay more for everything. In our situation it wasn't very good.'
Yesterday Ryanair waived some of its controversial new baggage fees amid confusion among thousands of passengers at airports.
Emma and Andrew Rutherford, from Kingston, south west London, were catching a Ryanair flight to the south of France, where they regularly stay at their holiday home.
The couple always use Ryanair, which has the most convenient route to Bergerac, and will be regularly affected by the new fees.
Mr Rutherford, 58, a co-owner of a recruitment firm, said: 'You might as well quadruple the price of their flights because you end up paying so much more than they say you will.
'They are not doing themselves any favours. You can pay £9.99 for the flight and then £69 in add ons.
'I'd rather they just tell you it's going to cost £70 from the start. It is like they are trying to charge us for everything nowadays. Weren't they going to make people pay to use the toilets?'
The stringent new rules have led to confusion among many who have pointed out that if they pay for priority boarding – which costs £6 – they will continue to be allowed to take both a 'personal bag' and a small suitcase as hand baggage.
Craig and Gina Steventon, from Lancashire, paid £12 each for Priority Boarding on a return flight to Pisa in Italy when they were warned by the airline they would otherwise have to pay £8 each for their hand luggage.
Craig, a 57-year-old business consultant, said: 'It's ridiculous. It's just so typical of Ryanair.
'You half expect it from them now - you think your getting a cheap flight but it's not. Our flights started off at £78 and it ended up being about £200 in the end because of all the add ons.
'And £24 of that was for the priority boarding that we didn't even need as now they are letting people on with their cases for free because of all the confusion.
'They should just tell everybody upfront how much the flight and everything that goes with it is going to cost rather than making it all so complicated.'
Gina, 58, said: 'We should get a refund. Ryanair need to refund us for the money we have wasted on a Priority Boarding we didn't need, now they are letting other passengers off without paying for their cases.
'They told us the charges were coming in so we booked Priority Boarding which turned out to be a waste of money.
'Everything is an add on all the time. We even had to pay £28 to sit together on the flight, otherwise Craig would have been sat at the front and I would be stuck at the back.
'They split you up, even though you can see there are seats available next to each other, unless you pay for it.'
Ryanair said the change, which was announced in August, 'was necessary to reduce delays' but many have labelled it a 'rip off' and threatened to boycott the airline.
One couple branded the airline 'outrageous' after they were faced with the new charges at the airport.
Retired married couple, Maggie and Dennis Norman, were returning home to Belfast with their two grandsons Adam, 15, and Angus, four, after spending three days in London.
Dennis, a 64-year-old retired teacher, said: 'It is outrageous but it's so typical of Ryanair. W
