On KLM, is it true that if you are traveling consecutively on 3 sectors ON THE SAME PNR, the highest baggage allowance is applicable to all sectors? I.e. one sector is business class and others economy, then allowance for that sector is applicable to all other sectors on the PNR on a single journey? KIndly confirm if this applies also to KLM, since it does apply to BA. THANKS

Admin Reply :

We could not get a reliable reply from KLM. However, as per the general trend, it is customary to allow higher baggage allowance for all sectors on same PNR.

Hello, myself , my husband n 2 children aged 7 and 2 are travelling to India from London, checked in baggage allowance per bag is 23 kgs... We then have a domestic flight from Delhi to Lucknow ( indigo airlines) which allows checked in baggage 15 kgs per person... Can I check in 23+23+14 kg bags in that case which would total to 60 kgs as per the free allowance, basically clubbing the bags ... Plz respond ASAP as we flying on Thursday .. Thanks in advance..

If you have total baggage of 60 kg check in for 4 passengers, then the domestic IndiGo flights will allow its carriage in 23+23+14 free of cost (since each bag is less than 32 kg weight). Nothing extra to be paid.
