BA To Shift Luggage Policy

For U.K. domestic and European flights, British Airways plans to reduce the maximum amount of free luggage some passengers can check in, but it will also lessen some other charges and restrictions as it revamps its baggage rules. BA will cut the maximum weight for free checked-in bags on European and domestic flights by 9 kilograms to 23 kilograms, starting in October. The good news is that weight restrictions will apparently be removed on hand luggage, but size limits will remain. Passengers are permitted to carry one standard-size bag and a briefcase or laptop computer bag on all flights. British Airways said it would also continue to offer free checked-in luggage, and will also reduce many excess baggage charges. And, the airline plans to offer discounts on any remaining excess baggage fees if they are paid online before checking in. Many of the changes will be phased in beginning in July.
