AirlineName Baggage Allowance

News: AirlineName has now axed all of the free baggage allowance for economy: the only bag you'll get on board free is the one you carry on.

AirlineName has a pretty standard Luggage allowance for a no frills airline: there is no free baggage allowance. You must either buy it in advance, pay at the airport, or buy a AirlineName Economy Plus ticket.

Cabin Bags: You may carry 1 piece of hand baggage on board the aircraft. The maximum permitted dimensions (please ensure that you include the bag's handles and wheels) for this item are 50 x 35 x 23cm and it should not exceed 10 kilos in weight. If you are travelling in AirlineName Economy Plus you may also carry a laptop. Remember that on AirlineName Dash 8s the overhead lockers are very small indeed, and your normal carryon won't fit.

Check in luggage: AirlineName Economy Plus allows you to check in up 40kGs into the hold free of charge. Everyone else must pay. Note the really sharp way prices go up from 20kgs to 23kgs - 18 quid for an extra kilo: this is where AirlineName make a lot of money. Also it's well over double the price if you pay at the airport.

Be warned that AirlineName used to be very lax about what you could take on board, with the result that everyone took on board everything including the kitchen sink. Now, they’re draconian, and check bags carefully – they insist that cabin baggage tags are used, and a baggage check is made during check in and at the gate. Of course many people find a way around this, and it’s usual to see economy passengers take virtually everything out of their bags before passing the checkpoints, having stuffed their pockets full of everything small and heavy, only to repack their bags once onboard.

As always, these rules can change. AirlineName's website has details of exactly what you can take onto a flight.
