I am taking an Economy flight SIN-CMB on 20th August. I understand that my baggage allowance is up to 30 kg. I will be boarding SQ 469 24AUG CMBSIN 0110 0740 on Business Class and change flight SQ 32 24AUG SINSFO 0925 0940 on Business Class. I would like to know whether the airline will allow me the 40 kg. luggage amount on my SIN-CMB flight. That will be convenient for me as I am having a long trip returning Oct. 2 via SIN and Nov. 20 to CMB. Please advice. Thank you. Mdm. Wee Swee Imm

Admin Reply :

We are assuming that you have booked SIN-CMB ticket separate from CMB-SIN-SFO ticket. In that case, the allowance will remain 30 kg on SIN-CMB flight. However, if you are a KrisFlyer Elite Gold member than additional 20 kg can be taken as free. Otherwise, you will have to pay for excess baggage.

For your information, for travel to USA, the allowance is 2 bags of 32 kg each in check in baggage for business class travellers.

Admin Reply :

Which route are you travelling? If allowancce is mentioned aas 40 kg, it is for 1 passenger. And, one check in bag can not be more than 32 kg. So, this 40 kg has to be taken in 2 check in bags.

Sorry to both you once again but I wanted to know about battery's, I am taking 3 Li-ion battery's each are 1250mAh for my camera plus a small IPad, plus an IPhone. What I want to know is I also have a charge up digital 10,000mAh power bank that I want to take with me. All will be in my carry on luggage, is that ok to take all that?

Admin Reply :

As per the general airline rules world over, lithium ion batteries have to be taken in cabin baggage because these are not allowed in check in. Even power banks would be allowed in cabin only. However, it would still be good if you could contact the airport office of the airline in your country for seeking more information on this.

I am travelling to Adelaide via Singapore after availing transit visa of three days in Singapore and boarding again the Singapore airlines flight on 4 the day for onward journey.Can my check in baggage be sent to Adelaide without collecting it at Singapore airport

Admin Reply :

You will have to check in again at Singapore. Only when the time gap is 24 hours that the baggage can be sent directly to the destination place. In your case, it is 3 days, hence you will have to check in again at Singapore.
