    Emirates indeed are now 30kg as opposed to BA's 23kg

    There's no catch..........Honest. Can you not fly both ways with Emirates?.........Wilba

    I am pretty sure the flight with BA will be the allowance you will have to stick with. I would have thought that when you check in BA will not be interested in what your allowance with Emirates was but as I avoid flying like the plague I am sure someone who has had to cope with this situation will have a definitive answer..Carol

    I agree with Carol here....I'm sure you will have to abide by BAs allowance for their flight...they won't be interested in what you had with Emirates. Have you enquired what the excess charge would be if you took 30 kgs on BA? Actually we have always found that 23kgs each has been ample for our two week cruises, remember you will have at least 5 kgs each hand luggage as well!

    I know some people don't like flying internally to Gatwick because their allowance will be less on the internal flight than their flight from Gatwick.

    thanks everyone for replying we kinda thought we would need to go with ba's allowance which is a bit of a hassle as we are away for 18 nights so a bit longer than the 2 weeks - will just need to cut back on the clothes for hubby and son lol

    Oh the men will hardly need anything, and get them to fly wearing lots of layers. Remind them that no one will be looking at what THEY wear, you are the one that matters:DCarol
