Dalaman Airport- Individual Case Weight question?

We are flying to Dalaman next week with Thomas Cook, 2 adults, 3 children. We each have a 20KG hold baggage allowance. Last time we took 2 large cases and distributed everything between thm - but I seem to remember having some issues at Dalaman on the way back and having to repack everything. But I can remember the details. Is there a limit to how heavy a bag can be, would we be better off with 3 smaller caes?

Thanks

If your bag is 30kg and your allowance is 20kg then dalaman will charge you £14 per kg you are over,the upper weight limit mentioned is the maximum baggage handlers are allowed to handle for health and safety reasons,anything over 30kg and the airlines can refuse to take it.

Some airlines, like Thomas Cook, allow you to pool the weight between cases with an upper limit of 30 or 32 kg.

Others like BA state you are only allowed 23 per case and it can't be pooled.

Maybe print out any information from TC so if they start being awkward you can show the evidence.
