How many kilos of baggage do Philippine Airlines allow while travelling to/from the USA?

Philippine Airlines allows for a maximum weight of 23-32 kg per piece. Any baggage that weighs more than 32 kg must be repacked. Otherwise, it won’t be accepted for carriage.

How many bags can I have as carry-on baggage on PAL flights?

You are permitted to have one carry-on suitcase with a maximum length, width and depth of 56 centimeters. The available aircraft cabin is about 3 or 4.7 meters tall, so all bags should be no more than 3 or 4 items big, respectively.

For international flights, what is the maximum luggage size?

Bags can no longer exceed 62 linear inches on international flights. If you have a bag that exceeds this size, it might get checked, and also needs to be paid for more.

Can you bring a laptop to the plane?

Yes, there’s no rules against bringing a personal laptop on board the aircraft. Our flight crews have found that when you place your laptop in the stowed luggage compartment during takeoff and landing, you typically don’t set off any of the plane’s safety alarms.

Are we allowed to bring snacks on a plane?

TSA will allow liquids including food items in your carry-on baggage. But gel-like liquids are not allowed and have to have a volume of 3.4 ounces/100 millilitres or less than that.
