Hello, if I travel economy class from Bali to Shanghai to Toronto on China Eastern, what would be the cost for taking a rolled-up painting with me that is 100 cm tall and not very thick?

Admin Reply :

Paintings, if framed, are not allowed in check in baggage and have to be taken in cabin only. You might have to buy a seat for it.

In your case, it is not framed. So, it can be considered as a part of check in baggage since the overall dimensions of baggage are considered. So, if you can keep it safe inside check in baggage, it might be permitted. 

Please contact the local airline office for confirmation and other details.

I am travelling via China Eastern on 26 August from Nepal to Japan. In the route, I have 2 transits including 1 domestic flight in between from Kunming to Shanghai. So having a domestic flight as a transit in between how much kgs of baggage I can carry with me. Is the international weight of baggage allowed or I have to carry the weight of domestic baggage? (I would appreciate if you can mention the baggage weight too as soon as possible.) Thank you in advance.

Admin Reply :

If airline is same and PNR is same, then international allowance would be applicable for whole journey.

I am travelling Sydney to Shanghai and permitted to carry 2 x 23 kg of luggage plus cabin luggage. The following day I will be doing an internal flight to Shanghai to Xian so if I do take the extra case (1x23 instead of 2x23)what will I be charged for the excess luggage?? I see from other comments that laptops as part of your cabin luggage do not count as part of you 10kg allowance---am I reading this correctly???

Admin Reply :

If both the international and the domestic legs of journey are on same airline and you are travelling on same ticket, then the allowance of international one is generally applicable on domestic as well. However, in your case, there seems to be a stopover of at least a few hours. This can lead to a change in allowance acceptability. We would request you to check with the local airline office for better clarity. 

Laptop can be carried apart from the 10 kg cabin allowance as these are considered portable electronic devices (PEDs)

Hi, I'm flying from Tokyo, to Shanghai, to Guilin and then to Beijing. Is it allowed for me to bring both a backpack with my laptop and such, and a cabin bag of 10 kg?

Admin Reply :

A backpack is normally considered to be a cabin bag only. So, we do not recommend taking it as a laptop bag. The logic is that backpack can hold many other items apart from laptop, making it a cabin bag. For further confirmation, please consult Tokyo office of the airline.

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.
