Travel by Air-Airline Baggage Restriction.

Most airlines tighten baggage rules to help trim costs,the low cost carrier for example.They are trying to mitigate the impact of fuel price volatility, have resorted to stringent baggage restrictions as part of measures to achieve better fuel efficiency
According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), every 1% improvement in fuel efficiency across the aviation industry can lower fuel costs by US$700mil annually. This is unsurprising since fuel cost is the second-largest cost for airlines after labour.Low cost carrier in Malaysia, passengers on this flights are encouraged to travel light, like using carry-on luggage, to minimise checked-in baggage. They are allowed to have one carry-on luggage of up to 7kg, plus free 15kg allowance for checked-in baggage.
When travelling with LCC you are permitted to have one piece of baggage on board on condition it does not exceed the dimensions of 56cm X 36cm X 23cm and does not weigh more than 7kg.Your hand luggage must fit in an enclosed storage compartment in the cabin or under the seat in front of you. Items which may be seen as posing a threat to the security will not be permitted on board.
Checked Baggage ::Passengers of LCC are allowed to transport free of charge checked baggage up to a maximum weight of 20 kg or 15 kg in so far as the baggage complies with the conditions of carriage as stated on the official website of the carrier.Needless too say, a baggage exceeding the above limitations will incur an excess baggage fee. One can purchase additional kilograms both online (a cheaper option) and at the airport.LCC stands out from many other carriers we have looked into in that it defines different limitations and fees depending on what kind of aircraft one is going to fly with.
