It seems that where .ever I look, the maximum for a single piece of baggage is 23kg. Air India say they allow two pieces per passenger (economy class) so a max. of 46kg. plus 8kg of hand luggage plus laptop plus overcoat. Are there any more generous airlines (economy class only) - we fly to India at the beginning of August (two adults and two children (9 & 6)? Does anyone have any advice about what to take? And what NOT to take! I was thinking of using boarding school type trunks from www.storagetrunks.co.uk which look ideal if not a trifle on the heavy side - how many clothes are there in 23kg anyway? Ulp!!!
