      Overview of Lufthansa

      Lufthansa is the flagship as well as largest airline of Germany. When combined with its subsidiaries, Lufthansa becomes the largest airline in Europe. It offers flights to 18 points in Germany and 78 countries worldwide.

      Lufthansa offers a great variety of configurations. It has one-cabin to four-cabin configurations that may include First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.

      Such configuration flexibility may sometimes be a bit confounding to passengers as the perks and restrictions vary wildly, especially when it comes matters such as baggage allowance. Worry not, as the CabinZero Crew has got you covered. Keep scrolling to read our most comprehensive breakdown of the convoluted baggage allowance of United Airlines.

      Lufthansa Baggage Allowance Policy

      Such configuration flexibility may sometimes be a bit confounding to passengers as the perks and restrictions vary wildly, especially when it comes matters such as baggage allowance. Worry not, as the CabinZero Crew has got you covered. Keep scrolling to read our most comprehensive breakdown of the convoluted baggage allowance of United Airlines.

      The carry-on baggage allowance of Lufthansa varies depending on the type of boarding ticket as well as the route it will be taking. The item’s maximum dimensions should be:

      + 21 x 15 x 9 in (55 x 40 x 23 cm);

      + 22 x 21 x 6 in (57 x 54 x 15 cm), if it’s a foldable garment bag.

      The actual number of items as well as the maximum weight per item depend on your boarding class and route. Please refer below:

      For international flights:

      - Economy Light, Class, and Premium Economy passengers can only bring 1 piece of luggage of maximum 17 lbs (8 kg);

      - Business and First Class passengers can bring up to 2 pieces of luggage  of maximum 17 lbs (8 kg);

      - First Class passengers can bring up to 2 pieces of luggage  of maximum 17 lbs (8 kg);

      The number of baggage pieces that passengers boarding Lufthansa are permitted to check in depends on their boarding class, which will be illustrated below:

      The maximum size of each piece should be 62 in (158 cm) in cumulative size. If your item exceeds this allowance, it will be counted as excess baggage and will cost extra.

      Sporting equipment and musical instruments policy

      1. Musical instruments

      You can bring it on board if it’s small (a harmonica, an ukulele) and it conforms to the carry-on baggage allowance. Keep in mind that if it’s edging the limit then it will be counted as one piece of luggage.

      If your instrument is larger than the allowance, Lufthansa allows musical instruments to be checked into hold on a special tariff. Generally, it should be under 21 x 15 x 9 in (55 x 40 x 23 cm) in dimensions. Should it go over this limit, the owner must purchase an additional. This must be booked when they book their tickets. The musical instruments taken on-board must not exceed:

      - 61 x 16.5 x 10 in (155 x 42 x 25 cm) for musical instruments that stand in the cabin;

      - 43 x 16.5 x 20 in (110 x 42 x 50 cm) for musical instruments strapped to the seat;

      - 165 lbs (75 kg).

      2. Sporting equipment

      Lufthansa will carry sporting equipment of up to 70 lbs (32 in weight) and 124 in (315 cm) in length. Any equipment that exceeds this limit will be charged for cargo transport. However, once the sport equipment goes over the free baggage allowance and the weight limit of the respective travel class but does not exceed the maximum weight of 70 lbs (32 kg), flat rates for sports equipment will be applied.

      Lufthansa’s rate for sporting equipment varies wildly depending on your equipment and your route. The best way to check how much you will have to pay extra for your bag (if you have to) is to use the calculator provided on Lufthansa’s official website.

      Your baggage will be considered to be excess baggage when it exceeds:

      - In Economy and Premium Economy Class, 50 lbs (23 kg) up to 70 lbs (32 kg) in weight and 62 in (158 cm) up to 115 in (292 cm) in cumulative dimensions;

      - In Business and First Class, 62 in (158 cm) up to 115 in (292 cm) in cumulative dimensions.

      In these cases, you will be charged the flat rates for excess baggage. Again, the rate varies wildly, so do refer to the calculator provided on Lufthansa’s official website.

      FAQs about Lufthansa Baggage Allowance

      It is possible to bring your pet on-board depending on the kind of animal, its weight and size, and the regulations in different countries. Your pet should either be a cat or a dog. If they are small enough to fit in a cage that conforms to carry-on baggage allowance, they can be brought on-board. Any animals larger than this will not be allowed in the cabin. If you wish to have them transported, do bring necessary documents and present them at the check-in counter.

      Assistance dogs, however, are allowed on board free of charge.

      Certain 15-inch MacBook sold between 2015-2017 has been recalled by Apple due to a battery defect. What this means is, you may not bring on board these devices if you haven’t had its batteries changed.
