China Eastern Checked Baggage - To/From USA

Been seeing/hearing of different check baggage allowance by China Eastern. If you have flown or have heard of others flown China Eastern to/from USA in the last year would be helpful in let me know what the official checked baggage limit is and what amount (kg) have you been able to get away with without being fined. thanks.

Add to what Benny said, at JFK, they are pretty serious about the size of the carry-on, but one can get away with a true carry-on weights just under 10kG (we had to move some stuff from a carry-on to a checking luggage to reduce its weight from 11kG to 9.8kG. It was 10 weeks ago).

Anyone have any insights on the checked luggage.

On Seat Guru it says for economy "Maximum Weight: 44 lb/20 kg"

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/China_ ... aggage.php

While on Companies own website it says "Economy class passengers traveling on the China-America route and China-Canada route can carry two pieces of baggage free of charge, where every piece of baggage should not exceed 23kg"
