Virgin Atlantic is changing its baggage policy. From Nov 25, the airline will introduce a "piece system" across its network for all tickets booked after that date.
The new system means that Economy passengers will be able to check in 1 bag weighing up to 23 kilos. Premium Economy passengers will be able to check in 2 bags each weighing up to 23 kilos. Upper Class passengers will be able to check in up to 3 bags each weighing up to 23 kilos.
The airline will also continue to offer one of the airline industry’s most generous sporting bag allowances, enabling all passengers to check-in one additional bag weighing up to 23 kilos that contains sporting equipment, such as a golf bag, scuba diving equipment, or ski equipment.
In addition, Flying Club Gold Card holders are entitled to take one additional bag on top of their free allowance, in any cabin. If traveling in Upper Class, this means Gold Card passengers can check-in up to four bags.
Passengers wanting to check-in extra bags will pay for each piece, with each extra bag costing 32 pounds/$48 if paid for online. Higher charges will apply at airport check-in.
Any passenger holding a ticket booked and ticketed before Nov 25 will be entitled to Virgin Atlantic’s existing baggage allowance. Any bags weighing over 32 kilos will not be accepted.© Japan Today
