I believe that Ryanair's (Ireland) cabin baggage allowance policy actively discriminates against infants. Despite the fact that they require an infant to pay the same fare as an adult, the infant has no allowance, whereas the adult has a 10Kg allowance. This policy discriminates against a large number of infants every day of each year.Is there in fact a valid complaint and if so, how can this matter be addressed via the EU Courts?
Nothing else at present

No, I haven't received an answer and I am wondering why you don't already know this from your system ?

Sometimes, finding the right Expert can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly.
No there isn't a valid complaint because the information you have outlined is not correct. Infants are charged a lower price then adults or children.
I regret that you are incorrect. Infants are classified as anyone over 2 and under 16 for fare purposes. This age category pay the same price as an adult. Please read Ryanair's Terms and Conditions if you don't believe me. I currently have five live tickets to prove my point.
So, please review your response and advise accordingly.
Your current response is incorrect and unacceptable and I will not pay for such an incorrect response.
I suspect that you have confused children under age 2 with the over 2 category and trust that you will now be able to advise a proper response.
You are incorrect. Infants (which was your request, are classified as under 2 and are charged a lower price). What you are referring to is children which in ryanair terms have a different status. Please review your question. In relation to children you are correct that they are charged the same price however there is nothing to prevent you purchasing a ticket for them as an adult if you so wish to gain the benefit of the the baggage allowance. The purpose of the children status is to establish if there is going to be any luggage. I would not feel there is any case in this
