Baggage Allowance Policies

Fri Jul 30, 2004 4:45 pm

What are the baggage allowance policies for today's major airlines? I notice that there seems to be an industry-wide shift toward lighter allowances. (For example, ATA used to be 70 lbs domestic. Now, it's only 50 lbs. Same with United.)

I think you can look them up on each airline's own website for that info.

If I fly on a itinerary. which includes a trans-atlantic leg, a few days stopover, then continue on a domestic US leg, and then back to Europe, all on same carrier. Will I have 2 x 32kg allowance (which is stated for the trans-atlantic legs) on all my flights incl. the US domestic leg?

If the U.S domestic flights belong to the International segments (Through Fare)then the same allowance applies to the domestic flights, However if you are holding a separate ticket; then the normal domestic rules applies.

This is one area where the airlines are sending very mixed and confusing signals to their customers.

Once upon a time it was clear 22kg in economy in Europe, piece system transatlantic. To Lagos anything hat can be carried.

Now some LCC's have reduced, but not very well publicised, lower hold baggage limits, 15kg for example which they enforce (ryanair) but some have increased on board weight limits, Easyjet for example. Yet some carriers who used to be full service, but now try to be all things to all people, have begun to police on board weight limits more aggressively.

Curiously the reams of conditions pages that spew out for an eticket (all at your expense) seem to bury this information very deeply.

No wonder passengers are confused

Well for ATA....

3 bags allowed(domestic)...any combination of checked or carry-ons....

extra bags-$50.00 each
bags that weigh 51-70 pounds-$25.00 each
bas that weigh over 70 pounds-$50.00 each

No bags allowed over 100 pounds......although some of our stations are very liberal in what they charge for baggage.

It's no more than two checked bags plus a carry-on (and a personal item, excluding assertive devices, etc.) now at ATA, Chris  Laugh out loud Both checked bags may be no more than 62 linear inches or 50 lbs. unless they are assertive devices for an ADA-protected customer or an item that is otherwise charged a handling fee (i.e. a bike).

Some agents are liberal, but if the scale shows that a bag is over by more than 3-4 pounds, I'll present the customer with their options (to include paying the very reasonable $25 fee). As you know, at C8 we are the rampers; I think this makes us more apt to strictly enforce the rules pertaining to baggage weight.

What's JetBlue's carry-on policy? There's no specific size anywhere on their website. Is it just basically what you can put overhead or underneath your seat?
