In the airline world, the war to reduce costs took a long time to charge to check luggage and reduce the weight of it. Ryanair limited it to 15kg and now Aer Lingus, which continues with a maximum of 20kg (charging us 9 Euros per way) does not allow more than 6kg of hand luggage, but Iberia takes them the opposite and decides to increase the weight of the suitcase that is going in the hold of their planes.
That's right, from May 6 for flights in the National network, Europe and Israel, the maximum weight of hand luggage is 10kg, the limit of 20 kg of checked baggage will become 23 kg for those who fly in class tourist and 30 for those who do it in Business class. If the destination is America, Africa or the Middle East, two pieces of luggage with a maximum weight of 23 kg may be billed instead of one in a tourist class. In Business they will be 3 pieces of 23 Kg.
For those who have long complained that there is no alternative, in price, to Ryanair and we always bring food from Spain, it is good news that may cause more than one to abandon the “low cost” in favor of a Traditional company, at least depending on the destination and the greater or lesser price difference.
