Japan Airlines - New Checked Baggage Allowance

logo_jal.gif Japan Airlines (JAL) will be changing their checked baggage allowances for international flights beginning April 1st 2011. The new checked baggage policy for JAL International flights will be simplified to a “piece” system with an allowance for larger suitcases.

For economy class travel between Hawaii and Japan the new policy will allow two free checked bags, each no more than 50 pounds (23 kilograms). The total dimensions for each bag (length + width + height) must be no larger than 80 inches (203 centimeters).

See the JAL checked baggage page for more detailed information.
