Current baggage rules for Air France and KLM that have been enforced for the sectors between Europe and North America, have now been extended to the rest of the world.
Starting 28 March 2010, instead of using a weight concept, a per piece concept will be implemented.
What does this mean for the passengers?
The airlines will permit passengers to check-in up to 3 bags free, weighing up to 50 pounds each, depending upon the cabin class.
Those who are traveling as Flying Blue members are allowed one extra bag regardless what class they travel.
Baggage in excess of the weight limit 70 pounds shall be charged 100 Euros from Europe or $100 from elsewhere or equivalent in local currency.
For additional bags an additional 200 Euros or $200 per bag.Passengers who wish to check-in online get a slight reprieve in the form of a 20% discount.
