The 12 kg bag is meant for check in or cabin? If it is for cabin, then this might not be allowed along with backpack. So, it is better to take either of the two in cabin.

as someone travelling from the UK to Korea would it be a major problem if my checked in bag is exactly 159cm? and as for my carry on am I able to have my carry on of 12kg as well as backpack that would contain my laptop and tablet? also if I did have to pay extra am I able to pay in KRW or does it have to be dollars as i'm travelling from the UK?

Admin Reply :

From UK to Korea, currency of payment is generally GBP. However, please contact the local airline office in this respect. If it is 1 cm more, it can be ignored. Depends on what airline officials at airport decide. Total weight of carry on luggage shall not exceed 12 kg.
