The allowance is 23kgs we usually take 3 cases with us and we aim to have no more than 18kgs in each case and with BA so far not a problem as they know from our e-ticket where we are going but certainly with BA on this flight it can be a 1 + 2 seating arrangement with the smaller plane they use from time to time but you might not be with BA as Wilba asks.

As airline baggage allowances vary depending upon sectors flown, level of ticket purchased and passenger status within the frequent flyer programme, as Wilba said, check with your airline.

If you are flying BA and you think the 23kg each will be a problem, they are quite reasonable for purchasing an extra case for your allowance. For example from Edinburgh to London it is only £20 for another 23 kilos if you buy online. This compares well to other carriers, for example, BMI charges £8 per kilo on the same route.

Currently only Flybe appear to cover Edin/Southampton and their allowance is 20kgs in the hold and 10kgs in the cabin unless you have Economy Plus which will allow 30kgs in the hold and 10kgs in the cabin.

Blyth is correct, Flybe are the airline and the allowance is 20KG. You pay extra for bags - £7.99 per bag each way if you are booking online. Excess baggage fees are £10 per kilo and they state that excess baggage is carried standby - in other words only if there is space available. However, a couple of kilos over on an already booked bag would make it very unlikely that your bag will be off-loaded. If you book Economy Plus it will cost you an awful more than normal Economy but your 30KG of baggage is included in the fare.

Brits and Tips.

By Sam Smith

We Brits as a nation have always been somewhat uncomfortable with the whole tipping scenario. Ok, in a restaurant environment maybe, but when was the last time you found yourself handing over extra cash to the nice lady on the checkout in Sainsburys or the very nice man who changed your car tyres in Kiwk Fit? Were they not all just doing their jobs, albeit well?This poses the question as to why we have to either pre-pay what can amount to noticeable sums of money when booking a cruise, or hav...

Symphony of the Seasmy trip...

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

So as I said last time I loved Royal Caribbean’s latest ship Symphony of the Seas.. I wasn’t too sure beforehand if she was going to be just too big, but I can safely say although without doubt a huge ship Symphony doesn’t feel too big once you’re on board. In fact all the different neighbourhood’s and places on board are fantastic, so much choice. I often talk to my customers who are new to cruising and they worry that they will feel enclosed and trapped, with ...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Many cruise lines stopped visiting Turkey itineraries after the military coup attempt in July of 2016 due to security concerns and Turkish calls on cruise itineraries are certainly a lot less common than they used to be.It seems that some cruise companies are now starting to re-introduce some Turkish ports of call with the majority now calling at Ephesus (Kusadasi) after security experts have given the all-clear.There still seems to be a massive drop in Turkish cruise destinations compared to...
