Japan Airlines is an airline that imposes its own rules for carrying baggage by offering a free allowance to all passengers booking air tickets with the carrier. The number of bags allowed varies by class of travel.

– Hand Baggage

In the cabin, passengers are allowed to carry a single piece of baggage of 10kg + a personal bag whose weight is included in the ten kilograms allowed, knowing that your luggage can measure 115cm. The size is calculated by adding the length (55cm), the width (40cm) and the depth (25cm).

– Checked Baggage

Traveling in the Economy or Premium Economy cabin allows you to check in 2 x 23kg, while flying in Business class allows you to check in 3 x 32kg.

Members of the JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) and JAL Global Club (JGC) rewards program can travel with one additional piece of baggage in the hold: 3 in Eco class, and 4 in Business class.

Each piece checked into the hold must not measure more than 203cm.

Excess baggage charges can be paid in cash or with mile points.
