You can check in at at least 1 x  23kg bag for free unless you're flying Economy Light.

All tickets include hand baggage (max size 23 x 36 x 56cm or 9 x 14 x 22 inches) in addition to the normal stuff you'd carry with you, like your coat or handbag.

Check your bags in at least 2 hours before you fly.

Some things you can hand to us at the gate - like musical instruments and pushchairs. Just make sure you've paid for any additional baggage if it exceeds your standard allowance.

Our Upper Class checked in bag allowance is changing from 9th December from 3 bags to 2.

The weight and size remain the same.
