PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! An easyJet flier caught out by a luggage rule has taken to social media to warn fellow holidaymakers. Author Pandora Sykes said she was unable to board due to a specific feature of her luggage. Pandora, who hosts the popular podcast The High Low, warned "anyone so foolish to fly easyJet" after getting caught out with smart bags. The high-tech luggage comes with a lithium battery or power bank used to power itself or to conveniently recharge devices like mobile phones. Over the weekend, Pandora shared on Twitter that she was turned away due to her suitcases. She added: "Captain just refused to let us board our flights because our checked-in suitcases have USB ports (aka 'smart bags'). Easyjet quietly changed their Ts&Cs a few weeks ago without telling their customers."
