Overweight domestic baggage

by anoggen

Hey all,

I'm taking a domestic (Air China) flight from Shanghai to Beijing this Friday in economy class. I'm aware that the luggage allowance is 20 kg/44 lbs, but as it is my bag may probably be closer to 22 or 23 kg (about 50 lbs). So my question is -- how are overweight bags dealt with?

As in, is it simply not allowed/are you asked to throw things out? Or is there a fine (if so, what is it)? And finally, is there a "hard limit"? (As in, for example on American domestic airlines you can generally check 50-70 lb bags for a hefty fee, but 70 lb+ bags are usually flat out rejected.)

Thanks for all the help!

Hi,
if your lugagge is only 2 kgs over the allowance, it might be accepted without a "fine", depending on the local policy of the airline.
Air China charges 1,5% of the economy-ticket-price (oneway) per kilogramm overweight.2 or 3 kilos could set you back for about 10 US-dollars, depending on the exact price you have paid.
Don't worry - have a safe flight !

Well, try to pack the heaviest stuff into your carry-on so that you won't have to worry about that. They're usually ok with stuff being a little overweight. Check-in early, just in case.

Re: Overweight domestic baggage

by CliffClaven

Most airlines allow a tolerance of about 10 percent, which means that you are unlikely to be charged an excess baggage fee if your baggage is only a couple of kilos overweight. That, said, I don't know the policy of Chinese domestic airlines. As a previous poster said, if you want to be certain, pack your heavy items, e.g. books, in your carry-on baggage.

I once flew from London to Beijing 10kg over and Austrian Airlines didn't charge me. But China Southern (or Eastern) did, for the domestic leg. Maybe 25RMB a kilo to Guangzhou. I had some really heavy books in my poacher's pocket!

And the upper weight limit is probably a health-and-safety thing, to do with how much the handlers are expected to lift without hurting themselves.

by polartraveller

they weight your luggage, give you a little ticket for the overweight amount, you go to the overweight luggage counter to pay for it then go back to the agent to show your payment stamp and collect your boarding tickets. Just allow lots of time to do this as many people have over weighted luggages/goods. It seems like paying for overweight luggages/goods is cheaper/faster to ship things from one city to another than using courier so many people just pay for the overweight goods at the counter.

In the past, I had no problems getting through with heavy bags at the larger airports. The problem was always at the smaller airports that are not real international level airports. The clerks there always got me.

One way I found around the problem is flying first class. I would get a first class ticket for about the same or less than the cost of the fine. First class passengers were either allowed more, or they were just not bothered. In any case, sitting in the first class lounge having a free beer and some munchies was much better than paying for a bag and getting nothing.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Stolling the Bund

by Paul2001

The Bund is the historical waterfront of Shanghai along the Huangpu River and the Zhongshan Lu. It was here that the foreign powers set up their commercial headquarters in the early part of the 20th century. For many when images of Shanghai come to mind, the imagine the Bund. It is the most frequently photographed section of the city and for many tourists, the starting point of their tour of Shanghai. What makes the stretch of Zhongshan Lu, so remarkable is the very fine collection of art deco buildings that straddle along the west lane of the street. These are some of the finest examples of art deco architecture that you will see anywhere. Most of the buildings have been restored to their earlier splendor after having left to decay during the Mao years. These buildings were the corporate Chinese headquarters for commercial banks, consulates, hotels and custom houses. Although for a view of these splendid buildings, it is best to go across the street to the Bund Promenade, it is a good thing to wander into some of these buildings on your own and visit there lavish interiors. Sadly, as these are private buildings, you will not get much beyond the lobbies but it is worth a try even if you only get this far. Some of the lobbies are elaborately decorated and provide further examples of art deco architecture in detail.
The promenade itself is a great place to view the modern office towers of the Pudong. It also can be something of a pain for there are more than a few hawkers here attempting to sell you knock off Rolodex-es and other junk. It is also here that you can hook up with a tour boat and cruise up the Huangpu River, another worthy event that I highly recommend. You should also consider a visit at night when the buildings are all lit up by lights. It is spectacular.

Let the calculator do the talking

by kphstar about Every Shop Possible

In Shanghai, let the calculator be your negotiator. There is little point trying to bargain through hand signals when neither of you speak the same langauage. So point to the calculator (which is always at hand) and come to an agreed upon price. Generally, the vendor prefers to do it his way. It more private and they don't other to hear what prices they're give you.

Thai in Shanghai

by asianbelle

Gosh, how could I forget the name of that Thai restaurant! The interior is very traditional Thai, it was like you were transported to Thailand. Well, until the waitress asks for your order and starts speaking in Chinese. The dishes were cooked no differently than if they were cooked in Thailand - spicy hot, as in chilli hot. I liked the sour taste of the tom yum gung, but my favorite is the dessert - fresh, ripe mango with steamed glutinous rice.

Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

by stmlnyc

The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel must be experienced---it is sooo very cheesy. Takes you across the Huangpu River to Pudong, right next to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.

Fee kind of steep at 30 RMB one way and 40
roundtrip.

Shanghai 07

by jimu

Shangai's motto seems to be "I'm not rude, I'm just busy!". The city is growing, the young folks are stylish, a real mixture of the new and the old. There is advertising everywhere, including huge screens downtown that constantly bombard your senses with commercials. So much to see - fortunately they have a good metro system. If you don't speak Mandarin, you will have to be creative, including getting people to write things down in Chinese to show to the taxi drivers. If you do know some Mandarin, it really helps.
