BA business class baggage allowance

We are worried about the flight from Barbados to Union Island. Baggage allowance on BA business class generous but will the flight from Barbados to Union Island allow the same

You really don't need any baggage so you should be able to avoid this issue.

Nothing too formal. Some shorts and dresses and a few shirts. Should not be a baggage challenge. This is not a showy resort.

Whilst you may have a 2-bag allowance for business class, you may want to avoid packing heavy. The small islands general don't have much in the way of shopping and souvenir offerings so unless you're planning to load up on cases of pepper sauce, best to avoid traveling heavy.

Depending upon where you're staying too, having to juggle cases, hand luggage and bags will be tedious.

The islands are so casual and laid-back that all you need for your trip would be slippers, nice pair of sandals (sneakers - only if you're working out or being active outdoors), jeans, shorts, some cool beach wear, a few nice tops and a black pants for dressy occasions, and of course your swimsuit! Have fun!

If you use all your business class allowance you may be charged for excess baggage on the flight to Union, and it almost certainly won't all make it on the same flight as you.

We have been known to use the full Ba club allowance because we take 'stuff' for our house on Bequia. But very often we only take hand baggage, the BA club allowance is very generous, check it out.

As others have said you won't need much.
