Does ANA weigh carry-on?

ANA allows passengers to bring onboard a piece of standard carry-on baggage plus a personal item. These items combined must not weigh more than 10kg and not exceed 22″ x 16″ x 10″. There is always a chance ANA will weigh your carry-on baggage so it is best not to chance this to avoid having to store your bag in the hold.

    Hi, can I confirm if check-in baggage allowance to U.S. from Singapore is 2 pieces (each weighing up to 23 kg or 50 lb) per person?

  2. KP Mohan · March 20, 2019 · Reply

    Can we carry a bag with linear dimension of 177 cms with 32 kgs instead of 2 bags of 23 kgs each?

    • Hi KP, ANA states that the max linear dimensions of any bag shall not exceed 158cm. Since your bag is 177cm, you’ll be subject to an ‘excess baggage charge’.

      Additionally, if you’ve purchased an economy fare, airlines are pretty strict about your weight limit. ANA’s weight limit per bag for economy travelers is 23kg. Anything over will incur an excess charge.

      Lastly, it’s important to note with ANA that if you exceed both weight and size, you’re subject to BOTH excess charges.

      The charges applied will depend on your flight route — you can see more details on Excess Baggage at ANA’s site here.

    Hi, I just want to ask if the check-in baggage allowance for Manila to Osaka flight is 2 pieces and each is weighing up to 23kg or 50lbs per person? Thanks!

    • Hi Mariz, this should be correct since this is an international flight. However, since we are not ANA, we cannot 100% confirm.

      ANA does state that your free baggage allowance should be clear on your e-Ticket/Receipt which can be found on the reservation details page. This link is very helpful in telling you where to find this information. Hope this helps!
