    Luggage Question - Thai Airways

    I have a quick question regards how much luggage can I book on a flight from Perth to Bangkok with Thai Airways, I know the max weight limit for checked luggage is 30kg, is that in 1 x bag or can I check in 2 x bags with a total weight under 30kg ?


    I will also have my usual 7kg carry on bag.

    Anything over about 25kg per bag gets a HEAVY tag so two bags would be doing them a favour...555

    Good info thanks...

    I searched Thai Airways Baggage Policy. Although it doesn't specifically state what you posted it is hinted at.

    I'm looking at options for later in the year when the girls come over.

    Trying to find info on Companion Fares as well but it seems buried deep. I might call the Auckland office and ask them.

    Max allowed on your ticket with Thai air is 30kg regardless of how many bags.

    However every airline has a max 32kg allowance for a single bag. That means if one bag is over 32kg regardless of excess charges over your 30kg allowance they will not put it on the plane.

    This is to do with heavy handling for the poor guy carrying your bag. We struggle getting our bike bags under 30kg.

    Of late I have noticed airlines checking carry on and some airlines are now weighing it as well as lady's hand bags.

    One day you'll settle down Meese and have a Thai missus and then your bags will be at around 30kg 555


    I should mention there was no issue at all with having 2 x checked in bags (both had some wine inside 555) at about 27kg and hand luggage of 7kg, maybe 10kg was Rivo's clothes, the remainder was for the boss and the kids 555

    BNE > BKK on Thai with 1 x 32kg and 1 x 30.3kg bag no problem yesterday. We also had at least 15kg in carry on fragile items.

    The scheduled 777 service was replaced with a 787, probably due to poor pax loadings and we had a fabulous flight home. Food and wines ex BNE were superb, staff attentive, movies all good and we arrived 30 mins early. An enjoyable 8 hour flight.

    Our checked bags not only contained tools like an angle grinder but also 3.5kg of cheese (Tasty and triple cream Brie), kalamata olives, Aldi tinned mackeral, red wines and a new blender!
    Cheers, Rob.

    Depends on the day and time. Outbound was 787 but our return was e-ticketed as 777 and seats booked accordingly. Smaller 787 being more economical it makes sense to use it exclusively.

    i thought there was only one flight/day each way BNE-BKK? leaves BNE 14.00 and BKK 23.59....certainly the only option when you search their booking site ATM.

    1080 and some of my family use it and was always 787 these days.

    Those are correct times and I also though it was a 787 service both ways. When we booked in January it was 787 outbound and 777 inbound according to TG's schedule and ticketing. I even looked at booking different days and could have (in theory) booked 777 service both ways. Perhaps Thai had planned for an increase in pax numbers ... I don't know.
    Cheers, Rob.

    I bought most of my stuff home in a big multi coloured plastic type bag that weighed FA. Coulda chucked it to you the other day 555

    Any sort of biggish plastic bag taped up would do the job?
