Submitted by alvin on Thu, 2016-07-14 18:39 Mangaluru: Jet Airways has decided to charge Rs 900 a piece for excess cabin luggage of passengers. The move aims to discourage passengers from carrying extra handbags as cabin luggage. According to a new rule, passengers will be allowed to take one handbag of seven kg (economy class) or 10 kg (business class), a laptop bag. However, women will be allowed to take their purse without any charge. Over and above of this, the luggage will be charged at Rs 900. A Jet spokesman said some passengers carry hand baggage over and above limit, resulting in lack of storage in the overhead compartments in the aircraft. This leads to boarding delays and causes inconvenience to other guests.
