Cathay Pacific has revised its Free Baggage Allowance (FBA) for Economy Class passengers travelling to North America on tickets issued on or after 21 July 2008. There is no change in the allowance for those travelling in First or Business Class or for all passengers travelling to other destinations.
It has dropped maximum weight allowed for each bag carried by an Economy Class passenger flying to North America from 32kg to 23kg, with a maximum of two bags. The same weight allowance applies to infants travelling at 10% of the applicable adult fare and not occupying a seat, though only one bag is allowed.
A flat charge for each bag above 23kg and below 32kg will be US$25 or the equivalent in local currency. Above 32kg, the existing excess baggage charges for each additional piece will apply.
The allowable size for each piece of baggage carried by an Economy Class passenger to North America remains unchanged at 158cm (62 inches) in any combination of the three dimensions. The three dimensions for infant luggage must not exceed 115 cm (45in).
