I have booked 20kg on MH with a transit in Bangkok before taking Japan Airlines to Nagoya which allows me to get 46kg. At the check in counter of MH in KLIA, which weight would I be entitled for?

Admin Reply :

Is there a single ticket for whole journey or two separate tickets?

WE believe that each airline will go by its own allowance. So, you might have to pay excess baggage charge to Japan Airlines.

Bangalore to Sydney free check in allowance depends on which fare type ticket has been bought by you. It is 20 kg for Eco Promo, 25 kg for Eco Basic, 30 kg or Eco Smart, 35 kg for Eco Flex. Which of these have you bought? Cabin baggage allowance is 7 kg for 1 main cabin bag in any of the Economy class tickets.

My booking reference is SZBX2Z to Auckland. First I could not find the booking using manage booking, Secondly, may I know under this booking, my golf bag is free of charge. If not, how can I purchase it and how much it cost? Looking forward to your reply soonest Thanks Tan Phuan Lam

Admin Reply :

Have you booked tickets with some agency? If yes, then that could be reason for your booking not showing up as the confirmation number might be of agency and not of the airline. So, you need to check on that front.

With respect to carriage of golf bag in check in baggage, we can say that this can be taken for free if it is within permitted weight limits. You can bring one such set for free including 12 glof balls, 14 gilf clubs and 1 pair of golf shoes.

Admin Reply :

Though cardboard box can be taken as a check in baggage in general, it shall be flat and not irregular in shape. Second, the weight and dimension limits for the cardboard box are same as that of check in bag. So, single checkin bag shall not be more than 32 kg weight and 158 cm in linear dimensions. Same applies to cardboard box. It is checked in on a Limited Release tag.

Normally, you are required to carry the medicine and equipment required during the flight for a passenger with special needs. This will be apart from cabin baggage allowance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can I transport a bicycle on MAS from Heathrow to Langkawi?

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.

Do I have to pay extra?

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.

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.

So can we fit in 100 kts of luggages and a very lucky get hand carry and we are even traveled with our 3 year ol Daughter

Allowances for check in and hand baggage are counted separately. Your total weight of check in baggage allowance exceeds by 10 kg and this has to be paid for.

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.

Hi ! Just wondering I got Economy class .I made one pc 31.5 kg check-in ,1 Hand carry suitcase 7 kg, 1 handbag (purse) 2.5 kgs .Is that ok .Or do you count hand carry suitcase and handbag together 7 kgs

Admin Reply :

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.

However, there is a restriction on the size of the surfboards to be carried. You can bring only up to 2.5 meters length surfboards in check-in. If you have longer ones, these would have to be sent through cargo. If the total weight of the check-in luggage exceeds free allowance, excess baggage charges will apply.

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.

Are musical instruments like the guitar and keyboard allowed in the cabin after paying excess baggage fees? What is the rate for purchasing excess baggage per kilo? Checking them in may cause damage.

You might have to pay a certain sum for carrying in cabin. Generally, a seat has to be bought. Please check with the airline since its permission for carriage in cabin would be required.

Please get in touch with the airline office at airport for details.  Some airlines do not allow at all, some other allow in check-in but the batteries need to be removed and carried in cabin as per our knowledge. So, please contact the airline local office for specific details.

I am thinking of bringing my Harp on a Malaysia Airlines flight and would like to know how much, if anything, this would cost in addition to my ticket cost. Together with my hold baggage I would be within my overall 30kg baggage limit (harp weighs 10.4kg including case) and its dimension are 120cm by 55cm by 42cm including the case. Will you please advise of any additional charge this would involve? With many thanks, David (Hogg)

Please consult the airport office because the size is large than 158 cm sum of dimension of check-in baggage. They will inform about the charge for this oversized item.
