Trying to find a weird use case for Emirates.

If you have a 1st class ticket, you're allowed 50kg for a flight from SYD to AKL/WLG/CHC.

However, I can't find out how much additional luggage would cost trans-Tasman if you've purchased a 1st class ticket.

Weight limits seem to be here: https://www.emirates.com/au/english/before-you-fly/baggage/checked-baggage.aspx but I can't find costs.

Eg an extra $$xx per yyy kg?

Emirates posts and updates extra luggage costs on this webpage. As of today, the cost of extra luggage on flights departing from Australia to New Zealand are 15$ per kg regardless of flight class:

Emirates cost for additional baggage

Note that it is cheaper to purchase extra luggage online than at the airport:

Purchasing online

Where the baggage allowance on your ticket is based on weight, you can purchase additional baggage online, at discounted rates, in blocks of 5kg up to a maximum of 25kg.

Online discounts per passenger are:

  • 50% for the first 5kg;
  • 20% for any subsequent amount.
