My fiance finally let me in on part of the surprise and told me that we are going on an 18 day honeymoon -- 10 days in Fiji, 5 days in Sidney, Australia, and 3 travel days. I am so excited but am concerned about the baggage allowance on the flight. My fiance will not disclose what airline we are flying on although he does have miles with Continental and its partners, but I was wondering how strict the Intra-Fiji flights are with their baggage restrictions.
He did reveal that we are each allowed a suitcase weighing 50 pounds and a 15 pound carry-on. Usually I pack that much for a 7-10 day vacation! Do they truly weigh your carry-on? My carry-on suitcase alone without anything in it weighs 7 pounds! Plus I would need to carry a purse as well. You can go over the weight limit, but it costs $5 per kg. I don't mind paying a bit extra if needed, but I was just wondering what experience everyone has had with this and how strict they actually are. Thanks in advance!
