British Airways Luggage Allowance

Hey guys,

I have just check our luggage allowance and it says there is a hold baggage and hand baggage that I can bring with me but I am not sure the difference of the two. Does that mean I am entitle to bring one main luggage that can be checked in and a hand luggage plus hand bag that I can bring with on the plane?

Help!!!

You can put 1 bag* in the hold that is up to 23kg (you can go over but you have to pay a fee). BA also lets you take another bag onto the plane as hand luggage that is up to 23kg in weight but you have to be able to lift it up into the overhead lockers by yourself. Oh and on top of that you are allowed a personal item too ie a handbag, laptop bag but that has to go under the seat in front.

Hope that helps you. :)

* Depending on what class and where you are flying from you can get more than 1 bag.

Yes that is their definition of economy and yes, you can get up to 3 bags but the personal one can't be too big.
