Baggage allowance

0 392

The last thing you would want at the airport is to exceed luggage allowance limits. That would mean paying extra charge or removing some of your belongings if you want to board the plane. To avoid such inconveniences, it is vital to check the luggage policy of the airlines you are going to fly with.

Luggage limits depend on the given airlines, your flight destination, ticket class and a number of other factors. Moreover, all airlines have their own list of the objects which you can take on board free of charge (e.g. collapsible wheelchairs and strollers) as well as forbidden objects (such as weapons etc.).

The table below presents luggage allowances for a selection of airlines (as for 2017), based on assumption that you are going to book a standard (economy class) flight. Remember that the data below is meant to serve as an example only and that baggage policies may change over time. It is always best to check the official website of the airlines of your choice.

Ugh get your facts right! How did they merge Lincolnshire with Cumbria? Dig some of it up and move it to the west coast?...

Not entirely accurate, much of this, but amusing to read. 1. Yorkshire was never a stronghold of Norse, but of Danes. 2....
