FAQ

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!

    Hello,

    I need to check, my baggage is not more than 18kg but I am not sure about the size of may bag. The bag capacity is up to 30kg but my total baggage is not more than 18kg.
    I will be travelling Osaka to Haneda on NH. I hope baggage will not be any issue in my case, as I want to avoid excess charges.

    Please advise.

    • Catherine Luther · March 29, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Sanchita,

      For checked luggage, ANA has a maximum linear size allowance of 158cm, so you would need to measure the length + height + width of your bag to calculate this.

      We’re not sure what cabin you’re traveling in, but it’s worth noting that Economy and Premium Economy has a maximum weight allowance of 23kg per bag, Business and First Class has 32kg per bag.

    Hi, I am traveling from New Delhi to Calgary by NH828 & AC10. I am allowed to take two 23 kg bags and I want to know how much I will be charged for my one extra 23 kg bag.
    Thank you.

    • Hi A, according to ANA’s website, this should be a charge of $200 USD for the outbound flight (converted to the local currency of the country of departure) and 200 CAD for the return flight.

      Please keep in mind we are not ANA, this is simply what we have gleaned from their website – for the most accurate information, we suggest calling their customer service department.

  6. Hello,

    I will have 2 extra bags from KL to Tokyo. Can you confirm that it is 100USD per piece? Can I pay cash at the airport? What currency do I pay in?

    I tried to look at the ANA website to no avail.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Mars – First, please be advised we are not ANA. We are Upgraded Points, a website publishing points and miles based articles and additional travel content like this baggage fee article. As such, we can give you our best researched answer, but we cannot 100% confirm any fee as we are not ANA – you would have to call their customer service line for that.

      ANA’s policies state that on international flights, economy passengers (you did not state which cabin class you are flying so I am just assuming economy here) are allowed two free checked bags up to 23kg/50lbs a piece.

      For extra bags, ANA states “The currency and fee applied vary depending on the itinerary, the sector on which baggage is checked in, as well as the airport at which the payment is made.” The currency should be USD when you are paying in Malaysia, and JPY when you are paying in Japan.

      Currently, the way ANA shows pricing on their website, you should expect to pay $100 per extra bag, per leg of your trip. If you have 2 extra bags both ways, this should amount to $400 total for extra baggage fees.

      If you would like to prepay online, please see our “Can I Prepay for Baggage” section above for more details. In terms of if you can pay cash at the airport? Many airport ticketing desks no longer accept cash payments – this varies by airline and even airport in some cases. We are unable to confirm whether or not you can pay cash but if this is your only option (vs. prepaying online or paying via cc) we suggest you call ANA first to confirm you can do so.

      Hope this helps…

        Hi, I’m leaving the United States and flying to Tokyo. Are there any restrictions for my checked bags? Can I bring lotion, vitamins, makeup and perfume in my checked bag. Not my carry on.

        • Catherine Luther · May 15, 2019 · Reply

          Hi Phi,

          You can view ANA’s restricted items on the airline’s website.

          In regards to cosmetics, ANA states:

          “Non-radioactive Cosmetics and Drugs (Including Hair Spray)

          2 kg or 2 liters per person are permitted to be checked in or carried on board in containers of up to 0.5 kg or 0.5 liters.

          * Sprays must have their valve secured by a cap or other adequate method to prevent the content from accidentally leaking out.
          * When checking in non-radioactive cosmetics or drugs and sprays for sporting equipment or daily use together, their combined amount must not exceed 2 kg or 2 liters.”

          So the items you mentioned should be fine, provided they are within ANA’s stated restrictions.

    For a passenger traveling from Tokyo to Singapore, is the cost of excess baggage US$60 for any excess between 23kg – 32kg?
    Thank you.

    My daughter is travelling from the US to Japan on ANA. Above you say that travelers get 2 bags included in their base fare. Is this including the carry-on (i.e only one checked bag and one carry on), or can she have 2 checked bags (compliant with size and weight each) plus the carry-on? Thanks!

    • Catherine Luther · May 13, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Gary, the carry-on allowance would be in addition to the 2 checked bags.

  9. isao suma · May 13, 2019 · Reply

    I heard a rumor that some carriers do not allow smart backpacks (that have smartphone chargers attached to the backpack) as carry on baggage or even as check-in baggage. What’s your policy?

    • Hi Isao, please be informed we are not ANA. We are Upgraded Points, a website publishing educational information on points and miles strategies as well as other travel related articled such as this baggage fee post.

      As such, we can’t confirm ANA’s policy on this. That being said, we attempted to search their website but have found no specific mention of smart backpacks. They DO mention that lithium-ion batteries are not permitted in checked luggage and in terms of carry on baggage, items with lithium-ion batteries are allowed but only if the battery can be removed.

      We suggest calling ANA’s customer service and inquiring directly with them for the most accurate answer to your question.

    Hi,

    Just want to confirm, from Osaka to Singapore, with 2 checked-in baggage at 23KG each. A total of 46KG will be allowed for each passage right? I will need not pay for any additional cost right?

    Please advise.

    Thank you

    • Catherine Luther · May 16, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Jessica,

      Yes, that’s correct. ANA permits Economy passengers to bring 2 checked bags weighing up to 23kg each within their free allowance.

      Thanks
      Catherine
