Hi, I have two questions. I am flying from Nova Scotia Canada too Chiang Mai Thailand! Can I carry on in my carry on bag my dogs ashes? and two can I carry on my guitar? Kind Regards, Nikolaus

Admin Reply :

Normally, airlines do allow carriage of human ashes after completion of certain formalities. For this we would suggest you seek help from local office of the airline. Guitar is best carried in check in baggage. Musical instruments of up to 39 inches are considered a part of free check in baggage allowance and are not charged for  if these are within permitted allowance by weight.

Admin Reply :

Thai Airways has special student baggage allowance for Indian students and can be availed from flights originating in India, not in Hanoi. So, there is no extra allowance for students travelling on flight from Vietnam.

I have booked a flight using united miles from bangalore India all the way to Chicago USA. Thai airways airline from bangalore to Bangkok to Seoul. Then from Seoul to Chicago is asiana airlines. This was all booked under one booking. How many checked bags can I have on Thai airways and what is the total weight allowed?

Admin Reply :

Even if the booking is one, different allowance rules may apply. This depends on a number of factors. We would suggest that you get in touch with local Thai Airways office for this. They would need your booking details to tell whether one airline baggage allowance rule would apply or different ones for each of these airlines.

Hello. I am travelling from Heathrow to Phnom Penh tonight via Bangkok. My e-ticket states that I can take 30kg, but one bag cannot weigh more than 23kg. Is this correct? Do I need to take multiple bags (e.g. One with 23kg and one with 7kg, for checked in baggage, plus my separate hand luggage), or can I ignore this and simply put 30kg in one checked in luggage bag?

Admin Reply :

No, for weight-based baggage allowances, one check in bag shall not be more than 32 kg. What you are mentioning is applicable on piece- based baggage allowance rules.

With this message, I have a few questions to ask you regarding baggage. I am going to fly from Japan to Cambodia. The total weight of economy class is 30 kg. As I checked in the website, it stated unclear about the number of baggage, only all combined pieces of baggage is 30 kg. Could you please let me know the number of baggage I could check in, except carry on? My case is that I have two baggage with total weight 30 kg- one baggage is 20 kg and another is 10 kg. Highly thank you.

Admin Reply :

There is no restriction on the number of check in bags to be carried on route where allowance is determined on the basis of weight of luggage. So, you can bring more than one check in bag. It is okay to have two check in bags of 20 kg and 10 kg in economy.

Hi. Im traveling from Melbourne to Bangkok, then Bangkok to Tokyo, then Tokyo to Beijing and from Beijing to USA. Each flight with different airlines. The maximum allowance with one of those airlines is 2 pieces of 23 kg. That allowance for baggage apply in my flight with Thai Airways? Thanks a lot.

Admin Reply :

It is not necessary that Thai Airways baggage allowances would apply on other routes when travelling with different airlines. Therefore, you must seek information from you ticketing agency or from Thai airways. For each route, either the First Marketing Carrier or the Most Significant Carrier rules might apply which will make the allowances different.

In the content, it has been clearly mentioned that there is no limit on number of bags to be carried but no check in bag shall weigh more than 32 kg for the ease of handling. So, you can take 30 kg in single checkin bag on non-US/Canada routes.

Hi dear. I want ask to u that my wife got thai airline ticket economy class from delhi international airport to bankok and then bankok to new Zealand. In the ticket showing there are total 30 kg allowed and plus 7 kg hand bag. But travel agent told me that you can carry total 47 kg luggage. Like 2 pieces 20 kg and 7 kg 1 hand bag. So can u plz tell what is the acctual weight she can carry on with her. Thank u

Admin Reply :

You need to check whether you have booked economy class or premium economy class ticket. Economy class is allowed 30 kg check in baggage whereas premium economy is allowed 40 kg in check in. Cabin allowance is 7 kg in both fare classes. If it is 40 kg check in baggage, then 2 check in bags have to be taken since one check in bag can not be more than 32 kg in weight.

You are not allowed to take more than 32 kg in one check in bag, therefore, you can not take 35 kg in one check in bag. 

Clubbing of checkin baggage as such is allowed for passengers travelling on same PNR.

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
