In the our recent email “Cabin Crew Baggage” we highlighted the importance of not exceeding a suitcase weight of 23kg.
Some members have pointed out that the maximum weight permitted is actually 25kg (OMA 8.4.4.g)
Some years ago Unite introduced a voluntary practice of a maximum weight of 23kg to protect the health and safety of baggage handlers. This is in line with the majority of passenger bags.
We know many of our members, and the Reps, are happy with a maximum weight of 23kg if it keeps our colleagues safe BUT we would like to clarify that you are permitted 25kg as crew.
