When flying , it's crucial to be aware of the etihad baggage allowance; otherwise, you risk being caught off guard at check-in or, worse still, having your priceless cargo arrive late. Passengers in Economy Class are permitted one piece of checked luggage up to 23 kg and one piece of 7 kilogram hand luggage on flights within the UAE. The checked luggage allowance is 30kg per piece for both economy and business class flights to locations outside of the UAE. This amount is increased to 40 kg in First Class. There is an option to purchase more baggage and/or larger allowances. At significantly reduced prices, baggage payments can be made at check-in or before boarding, and Etihad's My Bag Check gives customers a simple way to purchase extra weight online before boarding.
