    Might be too long for hand baggage but will be fine in the hold. Best bet would be to ask... Easyjet!

    The last few years I've just put my monopod in my hold baggage and there's been no problem.

    Just drop it in the case & recover it at the hotel - like you would chargers, plug adaptors etc - that has to be about as easy as it can get.

    I expect there are monopods that close down to a short enough length to fit in hand baggage.

    Then if it fits in it's no issue, if it doesn't you can understand why they wouldn't want someone with a huge stick on the plane...
    However, if you're only taking hand luggage you won't have a huge lens so is the monopod really needed?
    I've started travelling really light, just my 5D and 24-105 for city breaks etc, unless I specifically need a different lens for an event.

    Fully understand it cant be loose for sure, but wasnt sure how theyd take it when on xray...
    Im taking my 70-200 2.8, so its not crucial but a luxury, I can live without it for a day Im sure.....

    If what you were using was light enough you could take one of the walking sticks come monopod and just use the stick. I don't thin they would stop you taking that on.
