Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced a change in its baggage rules for international flights. Up until now, depending on the routing, baggage provisions on JAL's international flights were determined by either a weight system or a piece system. Effective onboard flights on and after April 1, JAL will simplify its baggage policy and adopt the piece system for every international route and increase the free baggage allowance to bring customers greater convenience.
Compared with the current piece system, free baggage allowance provided to First Class and Executive Class customers will also increase from two to 3 check-in pieces per traveler. Moreover, customers traveling in all cabin classes can now carry larger luggage as JAL has also raised the permissible total dimension (a sum of the length, width and height) of each piece which in the current piece system policy, is limited to within 158 cm but will from April 1 be increased to 203 cm.© Japan Today
