Baggage Weight Decrease!

For those who dont know I thought I would spread the word. British Airways is decreasing the maximum weight size of a per passenger. I know there are some specifics depending on each class, but Im not sure about it.

Right now you can check in a bag with a maximum of 32 Kgs, and if it goes over you have to take it out. They wont let you check it with more then 32Kgs. From October 2006 they want to set the maximum at 23Kgs. That is very light and I dont think it is very reasonable. They say its for health reasons, but before you could check bags in that were 40 or even 50 Kgs so I could understand lowering it 32Kgs, but 23Kgs is very light for a bag and that means you have to use more then one or two bags if your traveling for a while. What will honeymooners do!! The charges will be insane!

And they are also specifying the exact size of the hand bag you can take inside the plane with you. More details could be found at the link.

  7. my sister recently flew in from London on BA and was charged 215 pounds extra weight for her luggage! Its like she had to buy her suitcase a whole new ticket. This was 3 weeks ago.

    Her suitcase weighed exactly 32 kg and they claimed the limit is 20kg, it was written in very fine writing on the ticket. Seems like the new changes are being implemented already and even less then the 23kg you mentioned in your post.

    i’m really sorry guys… even when i flew BA between Kuwait and London every month for 2 years, the economy limit was 23kg… I even have some old tickets somewhere with that limit on. Yes, it’s possible now they’re enforcing it… and given what I see some people try to come onboard with, its GOOD that they’re limiting hand luggage size, particularly in this region.
    Remember, flights to/via US have always allowed a much much higher baggage allowance than european airlines.

    They r doing it for the money, as if they need anymore. Bas they know ena many of their passengers are Arabs and their luggages r always heavy!

  10. EFT! THATS SO UNREASONABLE! wtf.
    my luggage is always heavy. screw ba! i aint flying on it.

  11. this has my rite website link. the previous one doesnt work.

  12. Laialy_q8: I sent you an email!

    fadibou: they told me 45KD, but they are not getting another shipment for 3 weeks.

    Yazeed: I dont like those watchs either!

    Kay: is she bringing her whole closet? hehehe! the limit for economy is 20 Kg, but the limit for business and first is 32 Kg and two suit cases each.

    moochrex: as i mentioned before it turns out they changed it for first and business class. The hand luggage in the middle east is smaller then those I have seen people travel with in the states, because people try not to check-in luggage in the states so they dont have to wait!

    Bella: I agree with you, and Im going to be flying Viring out of Dubai from now on!

    sexygoba: It is very unreasonable! for long haul flights its annoying!and thank you for fixing your link!
