Carry on BA Euro Traveller

Am travelling Gatwick to Barcelona and baggage allowance is 23kg per adult. However although I can find references on the BA web site, nowhere can I find any indication of weight of hand luggage. I seem to remember someone mentioning 23 kg but that sounds slightly ridiculous! We are flying Emirates to UK so have 30 kg baggage but will have to redistribute some of it before BA flight.

Thanks for your help.

But note the bit that says "you must be able to lift the bag into the overhead locker". It's no good bringing your bag of gold bars on board and expecting the cabin crew to do the lifting for you.

Agree with you AndyW33. On a recent B.A. flight a young lady dragged very heavy, oversized, bag on board. She looked very indignant as neither cabin crew or myself, sitting nearby, offered to help her.

Had this bag slipped, whilst being pushed in or removed, from overhead bins could have caused very nasty accident.
