I have booked a one-way flight from Denpasar (DPS) to Sydney (SYD) via Adelaide. According to my e-ticket, the baggage allowance is:

Baggage (per Adult/Child) – Check-in: 1 PIECE, Cabin: 7 KG

What does "1 piece" mean exactly? How much baggage weight is allowed?

    I'd wager (from an outsider's perspective) that it must be one piece of luggage (one container) not exceeding any of the definitions - which are defined in the answer by Nean Der Thal.

  • It also means that you're allowed one carry-on/hand-luggage/cabin-luggage item that can weigh up to 7Kg.

According to Virgin Australia the checked-in luggage allowance is 23kg, with a total linear dimension (length + width + height): 140cm (55in).

The luggage can exceed 23kg up to a maximum of 32kg for a fee depending on the flight route.

  • Note for future readers - Virgin Australia luggage depends on your ticket. They have two types of economy fares now - Lite and Choice. Lite does not include checked luggage.
