Recently flying home from Kuala Lumpur after holidaying in Phuket, our luggage was 10 kg over. We were flying with Air Malaysia, who were great, however excess baggage charges were very expensive.
I somehow thought excess baggage was relatively inexpensive, so was very surprised when we had to pay $250 extra. Not ideal after holidaying for 5 weeks and spending way too much over budget.
I just wanted to warn other TA members to check these charges before they leave, as our cases were by no means even full, and probably could have fitted another 10kg between us.
Enjoy your holidays you lucky things
