I'm traveling from ningbo to Guangzhou by china eastern and from there to srilanka by srilankan airlines in economy class with same trip ID. What is the baggage allowance for check in and cabin?

Admin Reply :

China Eastern would allow 20 kg check in for domestic route whereas Sri Lankan would allow 30 kg check in for the second leg. You might have to pay excess baggage charges to China Eastern if you take more than 20 kg in check in baggage.

My mom Traveling to India from Vancouver airport Canada in China eastern economy class. Can she carry stroller and car seat for her grandson in India? She is just traveling by herself. She has only 1 baggage 23 kg. And 1 stroller and car seat weight 33 Pounds. Is she allowed to Carry this without any extra charges ? If yes what is best way to package this? Box , bag or suitcase. Please advised. Thanks

Admin Reply :

Stroller and car seat will have to be carried in check in baggage. Allowance on this route is to be based on piece system, so it is better to keep 2 pieces of check in baggage each 23 kg. And, dimension of each piece shall also be less than 158 cm. You can have any of these- box, bag or suitcase, whichever you think will be able to meet the weight and size limits of your check in baggage.
