    I always travel to Uganda via Brussels once a year, it would be nice if sometimes you would allow us to get away with that one or two extra kilo. I know its 23 kilos but I have 25 kilos don't you think as a loyal customer that is allowed at times.

    Hello Jenneh,
    unfortunately, we are not connected to the airlines so we don't have any access such information. I would recommend to contact directly the airline - you can contact and claim you lost luggage at http://m.brusselsairlines.com/…ost-luggage/

    Hi bazil kalsa samba,

    You can buy excess baggage either online when booking your ticket or via "Manage My Flight". The latter is available up to 24 hours before departure.

    regards

    Hi Thyaga Raju.
    Thank you for reading WhichAirline.com. What is of importance here is whether or not you travel with Brussels Airlines or on a code share flight. The way I understand the rules is that the allowance when travelling with BA is 1 piece not larger than 158 cm, maximum weight: 23 kg.

    good luck!
