Travelling with airlines, for many, is one of the most stressful experiences, even if you get yourself to check-in and boarding on time. The entire process from driving, to parking, to queuing, to waiting and then the cherry on the cake – delays. In spite of this we still pay premium prices to be herded around like cattle in many cases.
To dampen the mood for travellers even further, airlines are now cracking down on hand baggage and suitcase allowances again. The majority of us know that its easier to take hand luggage for short trips away, firstly for ease of boarding but secondly (and arguably more importantly) to save on costs. In light of this, below is a list of these recent changes to airline weight restrictions which I’ve summarised in tabular format to help you know what these new limits are. This should hopefully allow you to avoid getting stung by as much as $70 for one overweight bag.
