    30kg Baggage Allowance .. is this total or main bag ? 9th Oct 16 at 6:37 PM
    My wife is flying soon on Emirates from the UK to Dubai and Johannesburg.

    She has an baggage allowance of 30 kg.

    is this for her main bag only (going into the plane hold) or is it 30kg total, ie her main bag, a cabin bag and her handbag ?

    thank you

    According to this http://www.emirates.com/uk/english/plan_book/essential_information/baggages/baggage_calculator.aspx
    the 30kg is the limit for checked luggage and 7kg for cabin baggage

    Emirates are very generous with their allowance, if you can lift it!

    We bought smaller cases so we can only get about 20KG in ours. Although I've no idea what people pack in their bags to get 30KG, I've just done a mock pack & I'm weighing in at just 10KG but without toiletries.

    Yes I agree Emirates can be very generous & have never questioned Mr Dukes 12KG camera bag, you can take a blanket, a pillow, & probably a cuddly toy ....
    Thanks everyone!

    30kg (or more) is dead easy to do. Christmas puddings, Christmas cakes, jars of home made chutney, snorkelling gear, shoes. You name it, we've probably got it packed.

    I'm just waiting for our star turn on "Border Security Australia".
