Korean Air switches baggage allowances

Date Posted: 2012-06-08

Korean Air is the latest airline to make changes to its baggage allowance system, but says itís new move favors travelers.

Starting May 31st, Korean Air will convert its baggage allowance system from a weight system to a piece system. The change, says the airline, will provide an increased weight allowance in all classes of travel.

In Economy Class, the free checked baggage allowance will increase from 20kg of total baggage to one 23kg bag; Prestige Class will increase from 30kg to two 32kg bags and First Class passengers will benefit from an increase from 40kg to three 32kg bags. Any additional baggage will be priced by item. For Economy Class passengers flying to the U.S., however, the rules will stay the same, and two free pieces of baggage can be sent free of charge.

The airline notes that members of Korean Airís frequent flyer programs will receive additional benefits and allowances. Korean Air has also launched a ticket booking option on its Facebook fan page. Savvy social media users can now conveniently book tickets on all Korean Airís international flights, where the airline says the best deals are available online.
