Thai Airways cuts passenger check-in baggage allowance

Thai Airways has announced that from April 1, 2019 their economy class passengers will no longer be able to check-in bags weighing 30 kilos in the hold for free. 

New rules state that for four categories of economy class (including L,W and V designations) passengers will now only be able to take 20 kilos free of charge. 

Group tour customers will also face the same restrictions though that change in the rules will come later starting July 1, 2019. 

Meanwhile,Thai and its subsidiaries have recorded nearly 11.6 billion baht (US$364 million) in net loss for 2018, but will be continuing with the transformation plan implemented last year. The group saw a 3.9 per cent increase in total revenue to 199.5 billion baht, coming from different revenue sources including passenger and excess baggage revenue.
