I have a question regarding the amount of weight per baggage allowed, and is this per person or as a family.

I am going to Pakistan inshallah in the summer (June 29) to Lahore on PIA, and wanted to know the limit to it.

If anyone knows, it would be great help for me, Thanks. :)

Effective 1st December 2008 (For USA and Canada only), the free baggage allowance will be two pieces of 28 KGS each for business and economy cabin. (Note: This facility is not applicable on other airline sector. On other carrier free baggage allowance is two pieces of 23 KGS each or maximum allowed by that specific carriers for interline traffic)

You're allowed one piece of hand carry, which goes in the overhead compartments, and a backpack or small bag that can fit under the seat.

If you travel from UK, with PIA, you can take 40kg & 7 kg hand allowance (although no doubt we will still try to take 45k & 10 kg hand!)

With Airblue, you can take 32kg, but it has to be in 1 suitcase only!!!! 8kg hand allowance

The Mid East carriers allowance is usually in the 22ish kg region

Going to Pakistan in summer is not a good idea.

InshALLAH I might also go on 29th as well. But am pretty certain that not on PIA. I had travelled on PIA for my whole life but since last 8-9 years I haven't been on PIA even once:D

It really depends on the person. If they are good then they reallly don't care about 1-2 KG but some are really picky so they don't let you take it.

As far hand luggage goes i think it depends on the size and weight of the carry on.

Nope! I think he was 2-3 years short of that milestone.

Can I just ask, the baggage allowance is 40kg for PIA from the UK, but does this have to be spread over two suitcases, because I have seen other airlines impose a maximum weight per suitcase? Thanks in advance!

I think it is 40 kg for one or 40 kg for two. Depends on the individual.

As long as I'm aware the maximum weight per bag is 30KG and this applies for every airline. so Don't even take anything marginally above it, they'll make you reduce.

Not every but some.

Thanks for the replies! I think I will limit one to 30kg then. I actually searched google for information about baggage allowance on pia and this thread is one of the top results. The lack of information from PIA itself explains why this thread has so many views!

My very recent experience with PIA (Manchester -> Islamabad):

1- Phoned PIA to query luggage allowance prior to trip. Allowance was quoted as 40kg luggage and 7kg hand allowance. Per item max weight was quoted as 32kg.

2- At Manchester: luggage checked in was weighed individually and was just less than 40k - allowed. Hand luggage wasn't weighed at all as far as I can remember, it was the size of the bag that was checked.

3 - At Islamabad: the total weight of all checked in luggage was determined, items were not checked individually. Hand luggage was neither weighed nor checked for compliance with size restrictions.

In summary: it's PAKISTAN International Airlines, so don't worry too much about following their requirements to the letter. Just enjoy your trip (and be prepared to get depressed when your back).

that i can assure will happen. you miss all the things that you did. when i was in malaysia and had come back from pakistan back to malaysia i used to listen to sw radio every day hoping to catch a pakistani station (i used to listen to pakistani radio in karachi) and i did find pakistani stations to my surprise but not the ones which i was hoping. it was extremely home sick (though i used to live in malaysia but missed pakistan alot).

lol I'm doing similar things exactly right now. I wasn't born in Pakistan, I haven't lived in Pakistan, but whenever I go there (and my trips are 2 months+) I feel like I belong there. Anything that tastes, smells, looks or sounds like Pakistan just brings on the waterworks :6:.
