QANTAS ANNOUNCES MORE FLEXIBLE CABIN BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE

From 25 March 2019, Qantas is changing its cabin baggage policy on domestic flights.

Customers will continue to be able to bring 14kg on board but the changes will provide the flexibility to have one of their pieces weigh up to 10kg. Previously the domestic cabin allowance included two bags that could each weigh up to 7kg.

The change follows feedback from frequent flyers who said they can easily keep within the 14kg limit for domestic flights but would like more choice in how they use their cabin baggage allowance. Most customers on short business trips and weekends away only travel with one carry-on bag plus a small personal item.

Qantas offers the most generous amount of cabin baggage of any Australian airline and we know a lot of customers enjoy the convenience of not having to check in luggage. Most customers on short business trips and weekends away only travel with one carry-on bag plus a small personal item.

Focusing on the amount of baggage customers bring onboard helps flights to depart on time and allows everyone to have their fair share of space in the overhead compartments. Heavy bags or overhead baggage compartments that are too full can cause a safety risk for customers and crew.

Customers will continue to be responsible for lifting their carry-on baggage into the overhead compartment. The cabin baggage allowance on domestic QantasLink Dash 8 turboprop services will not change and remains at one piece weighing 7kg for those smaller aircraft.
