You may remember that a few weeks ago British Airways let us know about some upcoming changes to their checked and excess baggage policy. As the restrictions on what can be carried onboard tightened following the recent security alert, they have decided to delay the implementation of this new baggage policy.
The new cabin baggage restrictions have an impact on what must be checked in, so this delay will allow them to discuss a long-term solution with the Department for Transport and the BAA.
As a reminder, for flights from UK airports, cabin baggage is restricted to one bag measuring a maximum of 45cm x 35cm x 16cm. A full list of prohibited items can be found on http://www.ba.com.
