Airline Baggage Allowances

July 14, 2015by Brenda

We often get calls after someone has booked their tickets as to how much luggage they can take with them before they have to pay fees. Below is a list of the airlines we book most often and their allowances:

1 piece, 50 lbs (overweight fees will be charged over 50 lbs) and a carry on bag:

  • BA – British Airways
  • DL – Delta
  • LH – Lufthansa

2 pieces at 50 lbs each (overweight fees will be charged over 50 lbs on each bag) and one carry on bag:

  • AF – Air France
  • EK – Emirates Air
  • KLM
  • TK – Turkish Airlines
  • RJ – Royal Jordanian

Keep in mind that airlines are becoming more and more strict about baggage, and while you might think that an extra few pounds is not a big deal, you can pay quite a lot for it at check in. Also, don’t overload your carry on bag as they have started cracking down on the weight and size of carry-ons. You could end up being asked to check that as well, and pay any additional fees, getting your travels off to a less than enjoyable start.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us, but this should be a good guideline to get started.
