Sorry for the earlier reply. It was for China Eastern. For China Southern, and for your route where KLM is expected to be a codeshare partner, the allowance of respective airlines will apply. So, KLM might allow 1 check in bag of 23 kg, China Southern will allow 2 bags of 23 k each for economy class travelers.

I am traveling economy class Shanghai - Amsterdam - Riga on 6th of December. I understand that I have one 23kg check-in baggage and one 5kg carry on baggage, and laptop can be taken seperately. I have bought a folding bed with metal construction for my dog that doesn't fit into my suitcase. It comes in a bag and the dimensions are 90x20x10 cm, weight is 3.2kg. What should I do? Will I need to pay CYN 450 for it as an extra check-in baggage? Also, I am an international student studying in Shanghai, going home (Riga), but I already bought the ticket without specifying it. Can I still ask for extra free baggage allowance and give my 90x20x10 cm bag as the second baggage?

Admin Reply :

Yes, it is an excess piece of check in baggage but it might not entail the given charges. You are entitled to the extra baggage allowance of 1 check in bag being a foreign student and going from the country of your school to the country of your nationality.

This can be availed only when you have given an application in this respect to the airline or the agency directly under the airline at the time of booking and also provided the relevant docs (such as passport, visa and student ID). If you have not done at the time of ticket booking, then you shall call the airline to know whether this can be done at the time of check-in.

Sometimes the agencies might not have the baggage allowances configured correctly into their systems. They are more concerned with booking tickets and cancellations, then baggage allowances.

The bike can be carried in check in if it is within the permitted check in baggage allowance limits by size and weight. You have not mentioned the origin place of your itinerary. If the battery is removable, it needs to be taken in cabin with proper insulation. If it is not removable, then it has to properly insulated. However, the airline personnel at airport have the right to refuse the carriage.

My grandson is travelling to Bali with the airline in October. He is taking part in a wakeboard competition. He obviously needs to take his equipment as luggage and I am concerned that there may be a problem at check-ins. He has travelled with the board before and weight is about 20kg with clothing inside, but obviously is slightly longer than a normal suitcase. On other occasions he has not been charged extra and it has just been put on the oversize belt at the airport. I have read the luggage allowances but cannot make any sense of them, please can you advise so I know what I need to do for him. Kind regards Christine Hart

Admin Reply :

You have not mentioned the place of origin of the flight. We are assuming this is an international flight to Bali. These equipments are not considered as a part of the check in baggage allowance and he might have to pay for it. Sum of dimensions of the wakeboard shall not be more than 300 cm.

We are flying from Brisbane to Beijing via Guangshou - and it seems we are allowed 2 bags of 23 kg of baggage. But after our 14 day China Tour where we end up in Chongqing, we will be flying from Chongqing to Shanghai where we board a cruise ship to return to Australia. Are we now only allowed 1 bag of 20 kg for our trip from Chongqing to Shanghai?

Admin Reply :

Yes, it will be 20 kg. This is what even the airline officials here tell us. We would request you to make an enquiry with the local airport office as well to confirm further.
