A day after announcing a ban on checked baggage for select long-haul flights from Kuala Lumpur to Europe, Malaysia Airlines confirmed on Wednesday normal check-in baggage allowances were available on all flights across the network. Due to a combination of strong headwinds and longer flight routes, Malaysia Airlines announced yesterday that the carrier will not allow check baggage on routes from Kuala Lumpur to European destinations Paris and Amsterdam.
A day after the announcement, Malaysia Airlines released another notice saying, “All Malaysia Airlines’ flights from Kuala Lumpur to London, Paris and Amsterdam from tonight, 6 January 2016, will resume flying its normal route. Normal baggage allowance has also been restored.
Passengers are able to check in 2 pieces of luggage of up to 30kg for Economy Class, 40kg for Business Class and 50kg for First Class.”
Malaysia Airlines said based on its current risk assessment, which was being done on a daily basis, it was now able to take a shorter route on European flights.
