Packing List: Travel Packing Checklist
Extra pieces (3rd and beyond) will be charged $50 each. There is also a fee of $50 applied if a bag weighs more than the 32kg (70lbs) limit. Large bags will also be charged $50 each, if their total dimensions (l+w+h) are greater than 60 inches.
These fees are cumulative, so you could end up paying up to $150 per bag if it is both oversize and overweight, and is the 3rd bag you're checking in.
Keep in mind that no bag is allowed to weigh more than 45kg (100lb).+ Show Full Policy
Customers exceeding the free allowance (too many pieces, too heavy, etc) will be assessed an applicable excess baggage fee.
