I have a flight booked with Thomson Airways, but I am quite unsure regarding the hold luggage allowance. I have already checked The Baggage allowance page, but they don't say anything about maximum weight or number of bags.

I am flying alone in the flight only mode and my boarding card says that I can have 25kg of hold luggage which can be upgraded to 30kg. The boarding card doesn't say anything about the number of suitcases, but It says that the maximum weight per luggage piece is 23Kg.

I am looking for someone with experience flying with Thomson who can tell me how many pieces of hold luggage I can have.

It doesn't make sense that my allowance is 25Kg if the maximum per suitcase is 23Kg and the number of pieces of luggage is one. I can't combine weight with anybody else because I and flying alone.

  • The way it's worded implies total weight. – Karlson Sep 22 '16 at 1:21
  • 25kg is an unusual allowance. Above 23kg usually requires that a heavy bag label is applied, so that normally demarcates luggage limits, with 32kg being the upper limit allowed following payment or status. 25kg also isn't listed on the linked page – Berwyn Sep 22 '16 at 4:22
  • Your allowance seems to vary with the type of holiday you've booked with them, which did you book ? Package holiday, flight only, ski holiday ? – blackbird Sep 22 '16 at 13:13

    Thomson don't seem to make clear what their baggage allowances are. However, we have no more information than you do, and our guesses at what their policy means are just guesses. You should contact Thomson and ask them for clarification. – David Richerby Sep 22 '16 at 15:48

    @JCalcines, I am sure this is about hold luggage but can you include that in the question? Some people seem to miss that bit. – Willeke Sep 24 '16 at 10:55
