Re: Baggage allowance
Pros: I like that KE is lenient with the baggage allowance of 23kgs per piece that some can still go up to about 25kgs due to measurement system used (Metric vs. US).
I also like that KE has bigger leg room even in the economy class.
Cons: I don't like the fact that KE charges the 3rd baggage (excess baggage) US$200 for only up to 23kgs. Anything beyond that is additional $100 for only up to 32kgs. another $100 beyond 32kgs.
I will state for a fact that Cathay Pacific only charges US$150 for the 3rd baggage and is already up to 32kgs. Perhaps this is something KE would like to look into.
In spite of Cathay Pacific's excess baggage rates, they have a smaller leg room in the economy class.
