    Default malaysia airlines

    Well we've gone and done it! - One way tickets booked for 13 Nov, gulp!!

    I was wondering if anyone has flown with Malaysia airlines from heathrow - my concern is the baggage allowence of only 20kg - I've spoken to them and they say they do allow upto 30kg with discretion - we've 2 young children and want to take their car seats. My biggest problem as any mother (or women)knows getting the suitcase under 30kg !!

    My 2nd worry is the domestic flight check in from auckland to wellington - I only hope our check in person is a very sympatic mum !!

    Any info or expierence re this matter I would be grateful.... SAM :icon_confused:

    Sorry, can't help with the baggage allowance issue, but would say I believe you have picked one of the best airlines to fly with. Malayasia Airlines is 5* rated and the service is deemed to be excellent. Changing planes along the journey is always tricky when the size of the planes varies and, accordingly, the baggage allowance. You would need to ask for help on this one, I think, and I hope you can get it. Good luck and congrats on getting this far :icon_biggrin: .

    We had a domestic flight from Auckland to Nelson. Absolutely no problems with baggage, even though we flew into Auckland with Air Newzealand and had a back braking allowance of 60Kg EACH - I think we had in the mid 40s in reality.

    Who Are you flying with domestically?

    What we tended to notice, and it will probably depend on the time of your flight,was that alot of the passengers on the domestic flight were business travellers who had been upto Auckland for the day and did not have any hold baggage to check in. So in theory, and a big theory it is, the airline shouldnt have been concerned with overloading with baggage.

    If they do cause you problems, I am sure turning on the water works after a 26 hour flight will probably melt the coldest of hearts at the check in desk. Or even whisper to your kids that they might have to leave their favourite teddy at the airport. Dolby Surround sound screaming MUST do it!

    But good luck with the flight anyway, I am sure it will all be fine
