She said the 7 kg limit applies to the things we put in the bag, not the bag itself. That's incorrect, the weight of the bag counts towards the 7kg limit. The Emirates webpage on baggage allowances (mirror) says nothing about ignoring the weight of the bag itself. According to Skyscanner, the cost to check in oversized hand luggage (= carry-on bag) with ...

On Emirates flights to or from the USA, checked baggage is by piece, not by total weight as is offered in most of the rest of the world. Here you can check two bags, each of which weighs up to 23 kg (50 lb). The total weight of all bags is not considered. If you want to check a third item, it must also weigh no more than 23kg (50 lb), and a $200 USD charge ...

The cabin baggage tester (like this one below) shows what size and, if it has a weighing capability, what weight the bag has. If it is weighed separately, the weight of the container (bag/suitcase) is included in the baggage weight. A 6 kg carry-on when empty is not unheard-of, but it is quite on the heavy side, and if they decide to check and enforce the ...

Emirates has a 7 kg (15 pound) limit for carry-on luggage. ... But my carry-on bag, a 21-inch bag with a hard shell, weighs about 5-6 kg when it is empty. ... I can't see how they could expect me to fly 20+ hours (total, one-way) with only 1-2 kg of actual "stuff"... I just want to point out that your line of thinking here is incorrect. You are framing ...

As all other answers have pointed out, the limit is most definitely on the total of the case and its contents. 5-6 kg for a carry-on is just way too much. You should use another bag or case. Even with a hard shell, you can find cases that weigh under 2 kg for a carry-on, including wheels, handle and all, and some of them are very, very durable. I had a ...

Economy class legroom in commercial airlines typically varies from 28" to 34", so if SeatGuru's saying 32-34", that's definitely at the generous end of the scale. That said, sybaritic luxury it's not. As a fellow tall person (but not quite as a tall as you), I find under 30" to be tough going, although it's tolerable for short haul. 32" is OK for most ...

An empty carry-on weighing 5-6 kilo is very unlikely. If it is correct, just replace it with something a bit more modern. I fly a lot in Asia and between Asia and Europe and I’ve mostly seen 7 kg limits for carry-ons. Whether it gets checked or not is a different matter, but your wife is definitely wrong about it being about the contents only.

As others have noted, 7kg is the limit all up. IMPORTANTLY The following point is made in anough detail to hopefully dissuade you from "trying it on" with an overweight carry on bag - On a number of occasions I have seen people systematically intercepted, in the security area where they cannot go back, to have their carryon bags weighed by people ...

So, cutting it down to the essentials, the bag weighs about 12 kg when full. According to my wife, who has flown with this airline before, this isn't a problem. She said the 7 kg limit applies to the things we put in the bag, not the bag itself. No, as the other answers correctly observe your wife is not right. It's the weight of the bag in total that ...

After finding time to ring Emirates, I eventually got my answer! There had been a minor schedule change on one of the returning flights, which meant the connecting time in Dubai no longer met the Emirates minimum connecting time of 75 minutes (which I read about on this SE question). For this reason, we had been automatically moved onto the considerably ...

Just about anyone can transit (including a change of terminals) at Dubai without going through immigration. I was able to do so when all entry into the UAE for foreigners was suspended earlier in the covid-19 pandemic and I needed to get home. Though of course the situation is dynamic and subject to change, I'd be surprised if Dubai continued operating ...

The problem is with Bangladesh govt and Biman. They invented their own rules that unless you have a UAE visa, you will not be allowed to board the flight from Dhaka. Hence, I ended up cancelling all flights.

Emirates has a service named Dubai Connect which will provide a free hotel and transfers for passengers who have a connection time between 8 and 24 hours (6 to 24 hours for first and business). But it is not available if one segment of the flight is Air Canada. Both segments must be on Emirates or Qantas. From the terms and conditions: Both your inbound and ...

You will be able to apply for a 48 hour transit visa that will allow you to leave the airport if you so wish. You are responsible for your own activities during this layover. The airline does not arrange anything other than the visa sponsorship. Transit visas for 48 hours are issued free of charge to passengers transiting through the UAE’s airports. You ...

Given that your two flights will be on separate tickets/bookings. In that case: You need to: Deplane (can take a good 15 minutes if you are at the back of a 777 or 380). Get to immigration. Dubai airport is large, and some gates require you to take an inter-concourse people mover. I'd count a good 15 minutes for that. Go though immigration. No idea what ...

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: 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 ...
