Logged baggage or luggage registered on flight is a type of baggage stored in the cargo of the aircraft and is not accessible to passengers during air travel. Lockage is usually heavier and larger than cabin baggage and labeled specific code (labeling) to facilitate handling.


Why is the maximum limit of carrying economic class luggage to aircraft set a maximum of 20kg?

1. Each aircraft has a maximum weight limit. If the aircraft weight exceeds the set limit, it becomes unstable. The amount and weight of the allowed baggage can affect the weight, transport and balance of the aircraft. If passengers carry more baggage than allowed, the weight of the plane can exceed the limit so that the balance of the plane is disturbed.

2. The aircraft manufacturer performs careful calculations and testing in determining the maximum weight allowed for the baggage carried by the passenger. This calculation involves the capacity and loading factor of the aircraft, safety and comfort of passengers during flight.

3. Assisting accurate and correctly and correctly calculated traffic and operational costs and following regulations set by local aviation authorities in determining the maximum weight limit of baggage recorded.

4. Loading and unloading time of luggage runs smoothly and pay attention to employee safety level (porter). More baggage amounts impact extend the handling time (settings) of and into the aircraft.

5. Maintaining a level of time performance. Passengers carrying lots of baggage tend to take longer checking and handing over the baggage at check-in.


Why is the maximum limit carrying baggage to the 7kg aircraft cabin?

1. The aircraft manufacturer takes into account the capacity and size of the aircraft cabin in determining the maximum permissible weight. This calculation prioritizes the safety and comfort of passengers during the flight.

2. Availability of cabin compartment storage has been measured weighing 7kg. Passengers must pay attention to weight and dimensions.

3. Easier boarding process and storing and storing baggage in the cabin. If passengers carry too much cabin baggage or cabin baggage are too large, the entry groove into the cabin can be disturbed and takes longer.
