Why move from the total weight policy

Well, it is more a logistics issue.

  • With less number of bags it is easier to load the vessel and would need less number of people in handling process.
  • This means lesser time at the carousel for the passengers.
  • Less number of bags means lesser chances of lost luggage.


We think it is a smart move by the airline to make a better airport experience. It might have also been a step inspired by Airlines like Lufthansa which has a similar policy on baggage. If all carriers follow suit then we can expect a larger benefit at airports in general – the luggage carousel confusion will be reduced and you can get out faster.
