Lost Luggage at Airports and Airline Regulations
The airport experience is stressful enough. Here are suggestions to help ensure that your luggage arrives with you.

You Can Take It With You!
If you are packing luggage with toileteries, clothes, and other items that would normally fit in a suitcase, you can refer to basic information found on your ticket. There are two very common terms on tickets, 2PC and 20K (rarely 10K). 2PC means that you are allowed to check in two pieces of luggage, normally 70lbs or 32kg per piece. 20K (or another number like 10K for example)is a weight restriction, which means that the total weight of your checked in luggage can not exceed 20kg or 44lbs. Page 2.

Knowing the Carry-on Luggage Requirements
Checked in baggage and carry-on items are treated quite differently. Most carry-on regulations allow for a total weight of approximately 22 pounds, or 10 kilos. Sizes for carry-on do vary, but confining the dimensions between 35 and 42 inches when you add up length, width and height should keep you from having to check in something that you wanted to carry on board with you.
