PAL Baggage Allowance

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is flying from Las Vegas to Manila on Philippine Airlines in a couple days. I booked her in Fiesta Class and just now realized they only allow 107 total inches of checked baggage for that class. She has 2 62 total inch bags. Does anyone know how strict the airline is about the size requirement when she gets her boarding pass? Should I just plan on paying the $150 over size limit fee?

Thanx,

Don

It has been two years, but I think they were more interested in weight than size.

Just over 2 years for me too but they got me for a pound or two over weight. If' they're that particular about the weight then I'd imagine they will be on size as well...better safe with a few extra dollars at hand :thumbs:

My wife checked her over size limit baggage at McCarran in Las Vegas and was not charged a fee. Now she has a little extra coin to spend in paradise.
