Luggage Restrictions!

by on Feb.25, 2010, under Funding, preparation

Eek! My Virgin Atlantic flight has a luggage restriction of “one bag” weighing a maximum of 23 kilograms (see their baggage policy).

According to that chart, it costs £32 for every extra bag I take if I book online before I fly out. I guess I’ll just take as much as I can – but at £32 it is certainly affordable to take a number of blankets, toys, arts and materials, medicines I hadn’t previously considered. If you want something taken over, please get it to me ASAP and consider contributing towards the Extra Baggage Charge of £32…

I’m going to write to them now and ask for Extra Baggage Charge to be lifted as it’s all going towards charitable purposes. I’ll let you know what they say :)

    Hello Amy!

    The baggage restrictions were NOT lifted by Virgin Atlantic – but I decided not to pay them in advance and just hope for the best… My gamble paid off! When I got to Heathrow I pleaded my case and after a few phone calls to supervisors, they let me take extra baggage on :D
