Checked Baggage

If you're lamenting the golden days of free baggage allowances on flights, you'll be happy to hear international British Airways flights include one checked bag in economy. In British Airways premium economy, this increases to two. Business class and First Class British Airways cabins allow two or three free checked bags, respectively, weighing up to 32 kg (70 lbs). Any bags in addition to your baggage allowance will incur extra charges.

British Airways asks that the dimensions of all your bags not exceed 90cm x 75cm x 43cm (35.5" x 29.5" x 16"), including the handle , pocket and wheels.

Carry-on Allowance

Before you leave home, may we suggest you review the British Airways carry-on policy first. It could save you from incurring additional charges, or having to check your cabin bag. You can always check to see if your luggage fits the dimensions by dropping it in the sample compartment at the airport.

British Airways carry-on luggage allowance is the same for all cabin classes. Passengers are permitted one piece of hand luggage plus a purse or laptop,falling within the dimensions of 22" x 18" x 10" (56cm x 45cm x 25cm), including the handle, pockets and wheels. It must be able to fit under the seat in front of you, or inside the cabin baggage compartment.
