China Eastern Airlines Baggage allowance 2012

Can anyone confirm for me that the baggage allowance for chinese eastern airlines really is 2 checked in bags at 23kg meaning 46kg in total? Unsure as I've never had to haul 2 suitcases through an airport before and want to make sure as Id prefer to leave one home if its not so rather than have to leave one at the airport!

Thanks

Hello,

I flew with China Eastern in August from South Korea to London. I also questioned this...so much so that I called the airline 3 times as well as writing on here. It seemed so much!

But it is true (at least for us) - we brought 2 x 23kg bags plus 1 carry on and 1 personal item...(1 camera bag and 1 backpack) each.

When I called to check they said it varies per flight so maybe call and double check but you will probably be OK.

Hope this helps.

Danielle.

Hi Danielle,

Can you please tell me the number you called to confirm the baggage allowance? I'm also leaving from Korea (to Hong Kong) and I really need to bring 2 x 23kg.

Thanks for the number if you still have it! ^^

I have another question: if you are flying economy are you allowed one personal item as well as your carry-on?

I am flying Chine Eastern from Shanghai to San Francisco. I will have 3 bags 23 Kg each. I believe the first 2 bags are free. Can someone confirm its 1000 CNY for the 3rd one. The airline webpage …ceair.com/muovc/…Baggage.html

isnt clear. It says as below.

"Baggage with excessive weight:

CNY1,000/piece for a baggage >23KG and ≤32KG

CNY2,700/piece for a baggage >32KG and ≤45KG

For Vancouver air line, the weight of baggage should not exceed 32KG/piece; for other North America air line, that should not exceed 45KG/piece.

Baggage with excessive number of piece: CNY1,000/piece "

Travelling from Delhi to Dalian. Derlhi-Shanghai and Shanghai-Dalian. Whast is my checked in baggage authorization? Is it one piece 20kgs or 23 KGS. Is it one piece OR two piece concept. If two piece, then weight per piece. Or is it only one piece? Or, any number of piece totalling to 20kgs/23kgs. Nothing is clear from web site.....regards

Yes, that is correct. Just returned from China and they did NOT even weigh them at Shanghai Pudong Airport on the way home!
