Not Freight Related but Hey! Everybody Flies Right?

Expedia Tool Shows Airline Baggage Allowances at a Glance
Shipping News Feature

UK – WORLDWIDE – OK, so it’s not something we would ordinarily cover as a freight industry publication but airline baggage allowances are something that affect virtually all of us from time to time and it’s good to go a little off piste occasionally. Coming from travel firm Expedia the ‘Ultimate Hand Luggage Cheat Sheet’ may be well worth a place in the bookmark department.

The guide to who allows what on their aircraft will be updated regularly, and Expedia claims it covers all the major and budget airlines working in the UK. Those who disagree can use the comments facility to enter details of any services they feel need to be added to the list of flight providers.

With standard hold baggage charges often now exceeding the original flight price, territory previously only held by excess charges, it may be well worth passengers using the tool to sort by baggage size, weight and airline before booking and see which carriers provide the largest luggage allowance and the best value for money.
