I've booked a zone 5 return Thai Airways flight with my wife from the UK to Thailand. We are flying economy class so each have a check-in baggage allowance of 30 Kg. My questions is, can we pool this allowance - for example checking in three bags each weighing 20 Kg?

Admin Reply :

Generally, airlines allow this clubbing of check in baggage for passengers travelling on same PNR. PLease note this applies only to check in baggage, and not to cabin baggage.

From seoul to bangalore via bangkok can I carry a 65 inch led tv and what charges would I pay

Admin Reply :

We do not think this would be permitted in free check in since the size of packaging would be too big. You will have to use the cargo services to bring it.

Can I carry a 75inch led television from Bangkok to Bangalore, if there is any additional charge how much should I pay if it is classified as over sized luggage

Admin Reply :

USD 10 per excess kg is the charge towards excess baggage. You are allowed to carry TVs of size which are allowed under the check in baggage policy. If it exceeds 158 cms but not 203 cms, then excess charges have to be paid. But if it exceeds 203 cms then you need to first get confirmation from TG, You can details at http://www.thaiairways.co.in/en/Terms_condition/baggage_policy.page?
