20kg. Is that just for main bag or total?

Pretty much as the title to this question states.....

Is the 20kg rule covering your main bag / suitcase or both your main bag / suitcase and hand luggage as well?

Many thanks in advance.

20kg is your main suitcase which you are checking in. I think your hand luggage can be an additional 5kg but you also need to check the dimensions of your hand luggage.

I too am flying with Monarch, and the tickets only state 20kg, but don't specify whether it's all together or seperate!

Any more input on this would be great.

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks all.

Barnie, do you mean "..that" as in your previous post (15 + 5) or "..that" as in the post just before your last (20 + 5)?

Sorry for the re-question, it's just that, the way your post reads, it could be taken from either direction.

Many thanks.

£6 (short haul) and £9 (long haul) per kg over weight. Up to a max of 32kg. Above 32kg and your bag is going nowhere, due to health and safety restrictions on baggage handlers *cough* throwers.

It is 15k.g +5 handluggage and they are pretty strict if for instance your hand luggage is to big in dimention.It is always a big problem for us because we are visiting family and need to bring as much as possible and usually only book a packageholiday because they are often cheaper than a flight only to cuba.If your luggage is overweight it is 9 pounds per kilo .
