Etihad Airways with new baggage regulations

Weight, not number of pieces: Etihad reduces luggage allowance

Etihad Airways has introduced new baggage regulations. The amount of luggage included in the ticket price is now calculated by weight.

Until now, Etihad Airways famously had some of the most generous allowances out there. Looking at other airlines, Etihad decided to follow suit and has moved over to a piece-based system. The new regulations affect all tickets issued since 31 January 2018. For tickets booked before this day, the old rules still apply.

On the majority of routes, the checked-in allowance for economy passengers is 23, 30 or 35 kg (depending on tariff), up to 40kg for business class and up to 50kg for first class. Higher allowances are available for members of the Etihad Guest programme.
