  • 1、During domestic segment of international journeys, the free baggage allowance for every passenger shall be calculated in accordance with that of international journeys;
  • 2、The forgoing specifications of baggage (including volume and weight) are the allowable maximum by the Airlines rather than free baggage allowance, and you need to pay for the overweight;
  • 3、The baggage exceeding the forgoing specifications must not be transported as baggage.
