LOT Polish Airlines Bagage et bagage à main

What is LOT policy with regard to carry-on baggage?

A passenger’s carry-on allowance depends on the class of travel. In addition to this allowance, a passenger may carry on board, free of charge, a smaller bag or food and a collapsible baby stroller/pushchair for a child.

What is LOT policy with regard to checked baggage?

LOT Polish Airlines applies the Piece Concept for baggage allowances, which means that limitations apply on the number of pieces and the weight of each piece which a passenger may check for free. Checked baggage allowances depend on the travel class and route. For all LOT flights and regardless of travel class, the size of each piece of baggage is limited to 158 linear cm (width + height + depth).

Only in Economy Class, passengers with Frequent Traveller (FTL) status are allowed one additional piece of baggage up to 23 kg.
