SAS Cabin Baggage Allowance

Discussion in 'SAS | EuroBonus' started by swdke, Mar 2, 2011.  |  Print Topic

  1. I am on an upcoming flight from ORD-CPH, and am curious about the cabin baggage limit. From the SAS website, it states that you're only permitted a relatively small bag, weighing no more than 8k, or about 17 pounds. For connecting passengers, where exactly, at ORD, would SAS check your carryon/cabin baggage to make sure you're not over the limit? Would it be a the gate, and do they actually check? I am connecting via ORD from DAY to CPH. I plan to just carry a backpack, not a large one, just one of book bag size. I plan to fill with some gifts for friends at CPH and not yet sure how heavy my bag will end up being. It could be less than 8k/17lbs, or it might even be more. I am just concerned that if it is more, will anyone actually check?

    Also, I plan to buy at the ORD Duty Free shop in Terminal 5, more requested gifts from my Danish friends. So, if I have a bag from Duty Free, and my backpack, that's actually 2 bags, so is SAS going to give me an issue on this? What's the deal?

    Thanks!

    I have never experienced SAS checking my carry-on. So I think you should be fine... I don't belive that they concider duty free bags as carry-on items, as I sometimes have 3-4 of them as well as my backpack... But somebody else could probably verify this more correctly than me. :)

    Very unlikely. It would be done at the gate if you are transferring, but I have never in my many many flights with SAS seen them check carry-ons.
    And as SK2868 points out duty-free bags should be no problem, I have also often carried a bunch of them in addition to my carry-on and I carry the one below and the bag itself is almost 3kg so I have often carried some 10-12kg on-board in that.:

    It has never happened to me on SAS, but it has happened with KLM. Another reason to avoid that Airline.

    I travel like four flights a week and mostly I bring both a carry on bag and a backpack with my laptop (like most business travellers). I have never been told to check the weight and I guess as long as you can put it in the overhead compartment by your self there will be no problem.

    I've never, ever, experienced SK enforcing any kind of cabin baggage allowance limitations by the gate. I have, however, experience cabin crews complaining about the lack of strict enforcement.

    Same, and have also experienced spanding too much time in the lounge and finding absolutele no space for my Travel Pro when I arrived, thus having it sent in the cargo hold :(
