Our Guide To Baggage Allowances For Lufthansa

With the summer holidays just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about your luggage and the restrictions you might have with your airline. In this blog, we have decided to help those flying with Lufthansa Airlines this summer and answer that popular question of what is Lufthansa baggage allowance? Lufthansa baggage allowance and Lufthansa baggage dimension restrictions for cabin bags differ depending on different factors, including route, travel class and fare, so we have the answers below.


Lufthansa Hand Luggage

When flying with Lufthansa Airlines, each traveller gets at least one item of carry-on luggage which can weigh up to but no more than 8kg. However, if you are travelling either Business Class or First Class, you can bring extra carry-on baggage with Lufthansa Airlines, a total of 2 carry-on baggage items. All carry-on baggage bags must also meet the set Lufthansa carry-on size dimension restrictions, which are max. 50 x 40 x 23 cm. 

Each traveller can also carry a small item of baggage, such as a handbag or laptop bag, on board if they adhere to the dimension restrictions of 30 x 40 x 10cm.
