In 2023 British Airways changed some rules about luggage, especially after Covid. The new rules include all class flights. British Airways Flights have normally four classes. In every class you can enjoy your travel depends upon how much you pay for it. If you pay more travel will become a luxury for you and you can take more luggage options. If you are travelling within Europe the baggage allowance is different. Some short routes have less baggage allowance. Below is a piece of complete information about British Airways classes and how much luggage is allowed on different routes and classes.
In Economy Class, the baggage allowance is 23kg. The dimensions of the checked bag should not be more than 90x75x43cm. If your bag exceeds this size the British Airline will not accept your bag. If the weight of the bag is more than 23kg then you have to pay £65 or $100 USD for every bag and also for only one side journey. When you are traveling with British Airways within Europe or outside Europe the luggage is the same.
Premium Economy Class:
In Premium Economy Class the baggage allowance is 2 bags of 23kg. The dimensions of checked bags should not be more than 90x75x43cm. In this class, you are also allowed to carry one laptop bag or a small purse. It’s the same if you travelling outside Europe or within Europe. If the weight of your bag is more than 23kg then you have to pay an extra amount of £65 or $100 USD for every bag for only single-side travel.
In British Airways Business class the baggage allowance is 2 bags of 32kg. The dimensions of the bags should not be more than 90x75x43cm. If the weight of the bags is more than the described weight then you have to pay an extra amount of £65 or $100 USD for every bag for only single-way travel.

In First Class, the baggage allowance is 3 bags of 32kg. The dimensions of the bags should not be more than 90x75x43cm. Also, if the weight of the bags is more than 32kg of single bag then British Airways will charge an extra amount of £65 or $100 USD per bag for only one-way travel. In British Airways First Class you can also carry a one laptop bag or a small purse bag free. You will not have to pay anything for a small bag if its dimensions are under British Airways. So, this class is always very comfortable especially if you have more luggage because 3 bags of 32kg carry a lot of weight and you don’t have to worry about your luggage.
Overweight and Oversized Hand Luggage:
The oversized bags mean the dimensions which British Airways decided for handbags are more than their limit. In oversized handbags, you have the option to include in checked baggage. In this case, your checked-in luggage should be under your weight limit. The hand luggage which is allowed is only 7kg. The allowed hang bag weight is 7kg but if you exceed their limit then you have to pay extra money for overweight hand luggage bags. In this case, you have to pay per kg how much the extra weight of your hand luggage.
Baggage Allowance for Infants:
Infant’s means kids under 2 years of age. Only baby bag is allowed for infants because, for those under 2 years of age British Airways will not allow any baggage allowance to infants as well as no seats for infants. But if you want luggage for infants as well as seats then you have to purchase an adult ticket for your kids. In this case, you can have the opportunity for a full baggage allowance for your infants.
Send Your Luggage:
If your weight is more than your expectation and also requires a weight limit no worries you can bring it with you. You can send the extra luggage with your luggage with send my luggage facility. British Airways will charge you $100 per bag and you can enjoy your journey.
