Re: Cabin Baggage Restrictions

Happy to report that TUI were generous and helpful. Though our hold luggage was 0.6kg over the weight limit of 20kg, and my cabin bag was 0.1kg over the 5kg limit, after a brief consultation with her supervisor, the check-in clerk allowed both items with no surcharge :-) All the same, I wouldn't rec...

Re: Cabin Baggage Restrictions

Thanks Banjo, a very pertinent and helpful response. We fly to CWL on the 28th so I will know for sure one way or the other. I will update here accordingly.
Bon Voyage! 8)

Re: Cabin Baggage Restrictions

Funny how people keep hijacking a thread instead of starting a new one. One of the reasons I have almost stopped using this forum.

Re: Cabin Baggage Restrictions

Thanks for that encouraging reply banjo. You have to wonder why they think weight is more relevant than size, given the huge variation in passengers' weights.

Cabin Baggage Restrictions

Does anyone have experience of how strictly Tui / Thomson apply the 5Kg cabin baggage rule? My cabin bag weighs 3Kg empty, so I can't bring a lot back! Do they weigh cabin luggage?
Flying from Bourgas. Thanks.

I think more people might come forward if the o/p were not so vague. It almost sounds like some kind of scam to lure people. I'm not saying it is, but people are rightly wary of making contact with people who profess to "help" with all kinds of things these days.

Re: Happy with your Bank? I'm not!

Given the government backed guarantee from the FSCS, if it were true that banks "own" your money, it would only be a technicality, and not relevant to any realistic scenario (I discount the possibility of sovereign debt wipeout or political revolution). I would rather trust stable, traditi...

Re: Happy with your Bank? I'm not!

Factual update: the FSCS protects up to £85,000 per bank in the UK. As long as you don't have various bank accounts with banks which are related to each other the £85k protection is valid for each and every bank account you may have. I really don't think the present UK economy compares at all with t...
