Angry Baggage allowance

Has anybody else noticed that most airlines seem to have reduced baggage allowances this year. Having recieved our tickets to Palma i realised it has been cut to 15kgs.Hubby weighed our 2 cases and they were 10kgs empty ,so he has bought 2 holdalls with wheels (only4kgs), the guy in the shop said they are flying off the shelf (excuse the pun),everyone must have the same idea. The way it is going we will have to become nudists jeez not a pretty sight!!!!. So be warned BONYSLAD if we should meet up in the future you may see more of me than you bargained for YUK!!!

We have now booked a couple of times with BMI baby who give 20kgs but on our last return from Palma the handling agents tried to charge us for 2kgs of excess baggage. When we argued, they dropped the charge but said that the airline "had told them to stick to the rules and allow no excess baggage without charge". I guess things are getting tight.

Default baggage over weight

Was at palma airport last year 1st week in June, Watched as they made people take clothes out of their cases & put them in a black bin bag. And then carry the bin bag on the plane as hand luggage, they did not even ask us if we wanted to pay. They insisted i put her shoes in hand luggage and after 15 mins jugling thing around we got under weight. A good friend of mine checks the weight of his bags on the bathroom scales.

You can buy a handy little luggage scale from Amazon (and elsewhere probably) which I'm going to invest in before the holiday.




They range from about £8 up to about £15.

Default bagagge over weight

Thanks Jane - I'm definitely going to invest in one of these. I always weigh my cases but it can be a bit of a nightmare trying to balance them on the bathroom scales!

Default Baggage Allowance

I weigh myself, holding the case, and then subtract my own weight. This is more accurate than trying to weigh the case on its own.

Also, anyone flying with Globespan remember they include hand baggage in the 20Kg allowance. Our hand baggage has never been weighed but I think it depends who is behind the desk.

That's what we do when we go out. The problem sometimes is on the way home - when you've been shopping! The little gadget looks good, so long as it's not too heavy!
