Reply To: Best luggage allowance BA or Cathay

Back to Forum


BA, by a country mile. CX allowance is 30kg (extra allowances if you are oneworld sapphire (15kg) or emerald (20kg)) – although there is no restriction on the number of bags. BA, on the other hand, allow you three pieces of up to 32 kg each – a whopping 96kg altogether – or four bags if you are oneworld emerald (it doesn’t appear that you get anything extra as oneworld sapphire since for “piece system” itineraries the extra bag only applies if the ordinary allowance is one piece).
