* If your itinerary includes more than one airlines, then please double check baggage allowances for the individual airlines. They may differ depending on the airlines you are flying with.
Airlines have varied baggage policies. Generally, there are two systems of baggage allowances and charges – one is based on piece while the other is based on the weight of baggage. The US airlines follow the piece system of baggage, which means that the baggage a passenger is allowed to carry as well as its fee are primarily determined by the number of pieces. There is a baggage fee charged for the check-in baggage by most of the US carriers whereas the hand luggage or carry-on baggage is free. There is an additional price charged on excess baggage as well. Generally, a standard check-in bag is of 62 inches in linear dimensions and 50 lbs in weight. However, an additional weight of up to 70 lbs can be carried by paying a certain extra amount. In case a passenger happens to carry the excess baggage, then the airline would most likely allow bringing an additional piece with weight up to 50 lbs and total dimensions of 62 inches for a certain fee.
The fee structure of luggage of the airline is determined on the basis of cabin class of travel, frequent flyer status of the passenger, and origin and destination of the flight.
