What does "Baggage: 1PC" mean on my flight ticket?
On my e-ticket for my flight with Swiss booked through Travelup.com, I see this:
Does this mean I'm only allowed hang-luggage? Or can I take hand-luggage, and check in one piece of luggage?
@Karlson I thought carry-on is synonymous with hand luggage (as opposed to “hold” luggage).
@Relaxed It is but more often referred to as Carry on since it makes a more clear distinction.
I have always known it as hand luggage (after looking it up, it seems “carry-on” is specifically North American) but what confused me is that your comment could be interpreted as an answer to the question rather than a terminological remark.
@relaxed That's why I specifically put it as a comment it's not an answer it's a terminological guess.
Airlines tickets usually report the amount of allowed checked baggages. Hand luggages are usually taken for granted.
However, in this particular case, the Swissair website says:
When you travel with SWISS, we will transport a certain amount of your baggage free of charge for you. The quantity and weight of this free baggage is clearly defined, and vary according to your booking class.
So I guess (if you travel in economy class) you are allowed one 23 kg checked baggage plus a 8 kg hand luggage.
carry on is ever more NOT taken for granted, as ever more airlines are charging for each and every bag, including carry on.
I took both hand-luggage and a checked suitcase and I was allowed, so your answer proved to be correct.
