The oversized baggage charges vary from route to route. Please check with the local airline office. Most probably, they will advise you to repack it into 2 bags keeping overall weight same and reducing size of one check in bag to up to 158 cm in linear dimensions.

Only check in baggage can be clubbed with passengers traveling on same pnr and subject to the weight limit of 1 check in bag not exceeding 32 kg and size of 158 cm linear dimensions. This is allowed only on weight-based baggage allowance routes, not on piece based ones.

I am flying from syd to Kul on flight KL 4104. I have an econony ticket. What is my baggage allowance? Thank you Alan.

Admin Reply :

If you have Economy Smart ticket, it will have allowance of 30 kg in check-in. If you have Economy Flex ticket, then allowance is of 35 kg per person. So, it depends on which Economy ticket have you bought. Please note that no check in bag shall be more than 32 kg in weight. So, if your allowance is of 35 kg, then it has to be divided into two check-in bags.

Admin Reply :

You have not mentioned which fare type within Economy class has been booked by you. However, you are entitled to a 30 kg allowance on Economy Smart tickets. If it is not showing on ticket, please speak to the airline customer support. Have you booked with any agency? If yes, then ticket might not be showing it due to improper feed of baggage allowances.

Hello. I have a flight going PEN to KUL and KUL to MNL this coming Nov.27 with both Eco Class with 30kg Baggage Allowance. And I'm planning to bring my 27.5" Mountain Bike (non-motorised) with me. I will disassemble the front wheel and handle bar and put it in 130cm X 82cm X 25cm Bicycle Carry Bag. Is it possible? What should I do? Should I avail for special Baggage (Sport Equipment), or it will be carried as part of my 30kg baggage allowance?

Admin Reply :

The problem is the size of bicycle baggage. It is more than 204 cm which means that it will have to sent through cargo services of the airline and will not be checked-in. Bicycle boxed up to 158 cm in sum of dimension are allowed without charge as part of check in baggage and from 158 cm to 204cm, oversize charges are to be paid.

Hello, I have a flight with two legs on Malaysia Airlines (economy). If my second leg (longest) is approved for business class - what would be my baggage allowance bw? At check-in will the baggage allowance apply for business or would they apply based on fare type?

Admin Reply :

If airline is Malaysia airline only on both legs of journey, generally the higher cabin class baggage allowance applies to lower cabin classes as well. We would still request you speak to local airline office for better confirmation since we do not have your itinerary details.

Admin Reply :

Only Economy Lite tickets do not have free check-in baggage allowance on domestic routes within Malaysia on Malaysian Airlines. You might have booked this fare type which allows only 7 kg cabin baggage. Economy Basic allowed 20 kg free allowance in check in and Economy Flex allows 25 kg in check in baggage on domestic route. Business class passengers are allowed 40 kg free allowance.

You can bring more than one check in bag within 30 kg weight limit. You can bring this item in check in luggage. Whether this would be charged or not will depend on discretion of airline officials at airport.

Thanks for your reply. Just to reconfirm. My special service booking says Extra Baggage Unit: KG Weight (Kg): 10 Number of Baggage: 1 Since it specifically says Number of Baggage is 1, does that mean that I need to have a separate bag weighing 10 or less kg..?? or is it okay if I take two bags weighing 20 & 15 Kgs for Check-in..? Further the total Cabin baggage weight of 7 Kgs is inclusive of Laptop or exclusive..?

Admin Reply :

They would consider total weight of the bags. Laptop can be carried in addition to cabin allowance.

I have booked my flight from Mumbai to Sydney through Malaysian airlines. As per my ticket I'm allowed 25Kgs check in & 7Kg Cabin baggage. I have taken the additional service of Standard seat + 10 Kgs excess baggage. Does that mean I'm allowed to carry additional 10 Kgs either in by way of Check-in or by way of Cabin baggage.? Does the additional 10 Kg allowed only by way of a separate Bag or it can be clubbed with my check-in baggage. Am I allowed to carry my Laptop in addition to my cabin baggage of 7Kgs.

Admin Reply :

Excess 10 kg is meant for check in baggage. No single check in bag shall be more than 32 kg in weight. So, if it is already 25 kg, you can accomodate max 7 kg in that bag from the additional allowance of 10 kg, leaving 3 kg which is to be taken in another check in bag. You can bring laptop in addition to cabin bag.

In the ticket there is no mention of of the allowed Checked Baggage on the Onward journey. In respect of the Return journey it clearly says that 25 Kg will be allowed. However at the time of booking I remember to have seen the allowance for Onward as 35 Kg and for Return 25 Kg. The Ticket was Booked online through Make My Trip. Please clarify and confirm urgently about the allowance of Checked in Baggage for the Onward Journey. Also I had specifically indicated my choice of Vegetarian Hindu Meals. I find this also is not appearing in the Ticket. Please clarify the position urgently.

I travelled from Perth to Singapore and checked in a small.box, well taped and tied with rafia, but was told by the counter staff that I had to get it wrapped at the baggage service before they wld accpet it. That cost us $18!! I have read the baggage policy and no where does it say we need to.have the box wrapped. Can MAS explain the need foe this as I have checked in boxes on many flights and no airline has had this requirement. I strongly feel it was a waste of our money to have a box wrapped just so we can check it in, even though it was well sealed and tied with rafia. Pl explain

Admin Reply :

Please note that we are not the airline and are an independent website. We can not comment on behalf of MAS. However, let us clarify some of your doubts here. People, at times, travel with check in bags which are of irregular shape which gets struck inside the security scanner machines making it hugely inconvenient for passengers to fly due to delays. These irregular shaped check in bags could be those tied with ropes around or some fabric, etc. That is the reason why your baggage was made to repackage and you were charged for it.

This rule has been introduced by some airlines around the world since last few months.

Once you get the card, it is automatically linked. Once you undertake any flight with the airline, your reward points are updated in the card balance in a few days time. However, if this is not happening, then please call the customer service of the airline.

My baggage limit is 37 kg(check in:37kg, cabin: 7kg). does Malaysia airlines allow to increase the baggage limit to 57kg for the people on student visa who are travelling for the first time? regards, Pranav nene

Excess allowance is only 10 kg for students who fly  from India, Australia and Malaysia and of age group 12-26 years. Please check with the airline local office about other terms and conditions so that there are no hassles at airport.

hi Malaysian Air, flying Denpasar - Phuket. My son has a surfboard/ approx. 6 kg/ but dimensions are approx. 175 cm x 50 cm x 20 cm. This is a small surfboard but it seems to exceed your size limits. Please advise. regards Mike Kelso

Admin Reply :

The length of surfboard allowed to be carried in check in baggage shall be up to 2.5 meters which is about 250cm. That is the only condition. If the weight of check in baggage, including that of surfboard, is more than permitted allowance then excess charges will apply.

Please advise if my Cardbox that is securely wrap is acceptable to be check in at self drop counter???. Thank you.

That shall not be a problem. Only the irregular check in bags, or the ones which are wraped in fabrics, blankets or with ropes so as to cause the box to be irregular shall be avoided. Do do not think yours will cause a problem. For better confirmation, please get in touch with the airline airport office.

Admin Reply :

When was the booking done? W.e.f 8 April, 2019, there is a change in check in baggage allowance rules. Also, you have not mentioned which fare type you have booked? 

So, check in baggagage allowance for bookings done on or after 8 April, 2019 is 20, 25, 30, 35 kgs respectively for Economy Promo, Basic, Smart and  Flex fares. For Business Class and Suite fares, the allowance is 40 kg and 50 kg respectively. 

If tickets are booked before this date, the allowance as per your ticket will apply.

Can I transport a bicycle on MAS from Heathrow to Langkawi? The online info. is confusing as there is reference to a combined max. measurement of 62” but or course bikes and bike bags are larger than this. Furthermore, there is reference to an individual assessed item ( not included in check- in luggage) for a fee of £35 out of London. This info. can be found on KLIA2 site but flights from London do not go into KLIA2. I am confused! Thank you.

Admin Reply :

62 inches is the sum of dimensions of check in bag in which the bike is to be packed. IT is L+B+H. This can be carried in check in baggage, as a part of the free allowance and if the weight is more than free allowance, then excess baggage charges would have to be paid.

Hi, I am travelling from Adelaide to Lahad Datu, transit at Kuala Lumpur then Kota Kinabalu. My connecting flight is Malaysian airline. With baggage allowance 30kg for international flight and 20 domestic flight. But I am going to check through my baggage straight from Adelaide to LD as I dont need to take it. Do I have to pay extra?

Admin Reply :

Whether the baggage can be through checked in will be told to you at the time of checking in at airport and you can request for the same there. It depends on a number of factors, depending on your itinerary. So, please ask the airline for it when at airport. Else, please follow up with the airline local office giving your booking ref number in order to know the details. 

In general, if the airline is same, the connections are provided by it, you have single ticket for all legs of journey and there is no layover which requires you to leave the airport, through check-in is provided. Again, generally it does not cost extra, provided it is allowed. So, please check with the airline local office for confirmation.

It is overweight as max check in baggage for economy class is 30 kg. So 4.5 kg excess in check in baggage. Excess charge will have ot be paid. You can pay for it online on the website of the airline or call their customer service.

Admin Reply :

Cabin baggage of 7 kg includes the laptop. We would suggest that laptop be carried in standard laptop bag which can be used for keeping any other thing. You shall transfer some items to check in baggage and buy excess baggage by loging in to the Malaysia airlines website Manage Booking section. Else you can contact the airline office over phone. Online payment gives you discounted rates.

And for my handbag is 1 small cabin and small bag? The amount that is written in my ticket was 40kg. Thank you!

LED TV is to be carried in check in baggage within the allowance limits, if it is to be taken for free. So, its size has to be 158 cm linear dimension and weight of check in bag+TV shall not exceed permitted allowance limit. If it exceeds, then excess baggage charges would apply.

IF your ticket says it is 40 kg allowance, are you travelling a business class? Please check for your baggage allowance with the airline local office.

I have two tickets from Phuket to Auckland connecting in Kuala Lumpur. My wife and I have three bags to check (26kg, 10kg, &10kg). Looking on Malaysia Air's site it lists the per-kg-charge for excess baggage fees, but also says: For Economy Class, baggage weighing over 50 lb/23 kg and up to 70 lb/32 kg, passengers will be charged $25 per piece for the first 2 pieces. So, one of us will check the 26kg bag and the other check the two 10kg bags we have. Will we be charged for the 26kg bag or not? Will we be charged for any reason relating to our checked baggage?

Admin Reply :

In economy class travel, 30 kg is free check in baggage allowance per person and there is no limit on number of bags to be carried. We believe that you might not have checked the airline website as the allowance for baggage is not dependent on the number of bags being carried. In your case, there is no problem with the way you are taking the three bags and there will not be any charge for 26 kg bag.

If you are carrying more than permitted allowance for your ticket in check in baggage, you will have to pay excess baggage charges. Therefore, if the check in baggage allowance is 30 kg and you are taking 31.5 kg, you will have to pay excess baggage fee. Hand carry luggage is okay. Personal item can be taken in addition to cabin baggage allowance.

Sum of dimensions matters. IT shall be within the permitted allowance. Secondly, even while weight and size are within the permitted allowance limits, the airline officials can refuse carriage on certain ground, these being odd-sized being one of these. So, do seek approval from local airline office for this purpose.

Hello, We are travelling with Etihad from Geneva to KL economy with a baggage allowance of 23kg, we then have a connecting domestic flight to Kuching. For the return flight we have a domestic flight from Sandakan to KL and then an international flight two days later to Geneva with Etihad. What is the overall baggage allowance? Should we only allow 20kg per baggage as we have domestic flights?

Admin Reply :

A number of factors have to be considered. For ex: whether the whole travel is on same pnr or different tickets have been bought? Whether there is  a stopover at intermediary location or not? And, whether there is any codeshare or interline agreement between the two airlines, etc.? So, we would suggest that you check with the Etihad airline local office on what allowance would be for the next leg as well.

In your reply to Chris Villareal today, you replied that his check-in allowance was 30Kg and it can be in 2 check-in bags. However, in your reply to Khoo, you stated that there is no limit to the number of check in bags so long as total weight will not exceed combined allowance. These 2 replies are in conflict, so which is correct ? Also, can the check-in piece be a well wrapped/packed cardboard box ? Thank you

Admin Reply :

No, these are not in conflict. In reply to Chris Villarea, the question asked was whether check in bag can be 20/20. This meant whether 2 bags of 20 kg each could be taken. To this we replied that allowance is a max of 30 kg and if you want to take it in 2 bags, you can take. 

In reply to Khoo, the position is same. Malaysia Airlines is passing through a crucial phase and the airline has adopted a policy of not restricting the number of check-in bags within a given weight limit and size limit. 

Cardboard boxes are allowed as check-in bag.

You shall not be charged for it since the weight and size of the check in bag (folded cycle in box) is within allowance limits.

I & my wife travelling from Bombay;India to Perth via kualalumpur. We have three bags each 20 kg.total 60 kg. Can i take

Admin Reply :

Are you travelling only one airline- Malaysia Airlines on both legs of your journey? if yes, check in allowance would be 30 kg per person for economy class, 40 kg for Business Class and 50 kg for First Class travellers. So, for economy, total allowance will be 60 kg for both of you. You are allowed to carry it in 3 bags instead of 2 but any one bag shall not weigh more than 32 kgs.
