I can get 30 lbs in our suitcases - since one of our suitcases is completely dedicated to items for the kids in the village it leaves us with 4 people and 3 suitcases to fill with snorkel gear, shoes, clothes, books, etc...it just is not going to happen - I've tried every way I can imagine - 2 of them are about 40lbs. Flying Sun Air to Tavenui - what can I expect? Will they just charge me for the extra weight or is it going to be a big problem? Heading out today!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
