Summary

Summary
Last update: 12 Oct 2016

Airlines has one of the most diverse and well-structured baggage allowance policy that is designed to cover all the areas in which the airline operates. To begin with, passengers in the Business Class and the Premium Business class should note that they will be allowed to carry only two checked in baggage that weighs 140 lbs or 64 kgs in total with dimensions of 124 inches or 316 cm. This is only applicable to passengers flying to or from the USA, Canada, Philipines, Guam and Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa, India and all regions around the Pacific.

On the other hand, passengers flying in the same classes but to or from Osaka, Tokyo, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Asia, India and areas around the pacific,the middle east the whole of America and Europe are limited to checked in luggage with dimensions of 107 inches or 273 cm and weighing 140 lbs or 64 kgs. In both the specified routes, an emphasis is placed on each individual baggage not weighing more than 70 lbs or 32 kgs and only measuring a total of 62 inches or 158 cm when the width, length, and height are added together.

In the Economy Class package, for all the routes specified above, the checked in baggage is limited to a weight of 50 lbs or 23 kgs and dimensions of 107 inches or 273 cm for the added width, length, and height of the baggage. This defers slightly for all flights in this class flying between Asia, Pacific areas, India, Saipan and Guam, in which case the allowed limit for the luggage dimension is 62 inches or 158 cm with a weight of 50 lbs or 23 kgs.
Likewise, in the Budget Economy Class, passengers flying to or from Osaka, Tokyo, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Asia, India and areas around the Pacific,the Middle East the whole of America and Europe are allowed to carry checked in baggage weighing 50 lbs with dimensions of 62 inches. It is imperative for passengers to note that all the excess baggage attracts additional fees.

For their carry-on baggage, Philippines Airlines allow the passengers to carry with them only one single luggage that should be able to get into the overhead bin. The dimensions specified for each carry-on baggage is a total of 45 inches or 115 cm for the height, length and width and it should only weigh 7kgs. There is a provision for an allowance of an extra two items besides the carry-on luggage which can either be a handbag or a purse for women, items to keep warm like blankets and overcoats, a laptop case and books which should be reasonable in number. They have also put into consideration people with disabilities, as they are allowed to carry these two extra carry-on items in addition to the pieces of equipment that aid their movement within the plane. Infants are also given special preference as the adults accompanying them are allowed to bring for them collapsible strollers, sizeable car seats or a basket for carrying infants. However, this is subject to availability of space.

In addition to their limits on baggage, they also apply several restrictions on the items that the passengers can bring with them on board. For example, alcohol allowable on the plane should have an alcoholic concentration that varies between 24% and 70% with a volume that does not surpass 5 liters. Any non-radioactive fluids like perfumes and medicine should weigh only 2 kg or 2 liters in total if they are many. Both these items are acceptable to be packed as carry-on luggage or check in luggage. In contrast, flammable fluids are not allowed anywhere near the plane.

Any passenger that is interested in carrying work tools with them is allowed to pack them in checked baggage but they should be thoroughly cleaned of any gaseous smells. E-cigarettes are allowed on board as carry on luggage but not accepted as checked-in luggage. Disabled passengers are allowed to carry with them their battery powered wheelchairs as checked baggage as long as they are not powered by lithium batteries in which case they should be packaged as carry-on luggage after the batteries are removed.

They also apply battery restriction for passengers who would like to use their electronic devices while on board. All rechargeable batteries that have a voltage that ranges from 100 to 160 WH are allowable as carry on luggage while non-rechargeable batteries will only be accepted as carry-on luggage if they have a lithium concentration of fewer than 2 grams.

As it is standard with all airplanes, there are specific items which have the ability to be used as weapons and are not allowed on board. These are firearms, electronic devices that have the ability to stun, all sharp objects, items that are explosive in nature and any form of flammable gasses.
