|i like being upgraded! muahahahha|
upgraded.... hmmmmm.... which part?
I don't like too many luggage when i travel... ideally would be just 1 bag in cargo n 1 in hand... don't like waiting at the baggage claim area.. once i carried too many that i forgot how many luggage i put in the cargo..

|I called the travel agency , its 30kg. My friend is bringing books weighting about 19 kg...gosh i don't know how much he is gonna pay man|
Last month, I came back from Sydney with MAS and had extra kgs which I had to pay at AUD20 per kg. Economy class has only 20kgs. But if you're a student, you get extra 10kgs (just tell them that you're a student and provide them your student card).
About hand luggages, the staff didn't get me to check in. That time, I had my backpack filled up and I had another hand luggage, which total weight of my hand luggages weight more than 7kgs. I told the staff that the hand luggages had my laptop and important documents. She just let me through.
But at the end, I still had to pay for the extra kgs I had for the check-in luggages.
FliRtATious is my middle name? Why yea, now I know why I have few female friends.. Aaahh.. I'm lacking of shopping partner...
I don't care what others think about me.. If I do, would I still have time to care what I think about myself?
And size only matters when you have low self-confidence guys~~

|Does anyone know how many kg can you carry on an international flight if you're a student ? the websites says 20 kg for economy class ... didin't mention anything about extra kgs for student tho|
I've got an idea. Make some friends when you check-in, ask them if they would like to share their luggage allowance with you. That way you don't need to worry about anything, just tell the check in that you'd like to share with them.
When i travelled to Aus, this girl brought a lot of stuff over, me and my friend decided to share our luggage allowance coz we didn't bring much stuff (she asked of course). That way she saved a lot on that fee.
To travel the WORLD!!!!!!!

students can request for 30KG, subject to final approval on the spot
(if the plane is fully booked and 90% students, they are not very likely to give you so much allowance - especially during peak peak times when everyone is rushing to go back for semester start... or semester break)
just for general knowledge and information... there are many classes of baggage for when you're overweight if you can't afford to pay for the excess weight... or when you have so much to bring you know you're waaaay over the limit...
AIRLINE EXCESS BAGGAGE
1.5% of the Full Economy Class Adult fare per kilogram.
Taken on board aircraft as EXCESS Baggage.
75% of the IATA cargo rate. Must be sent as cargo prior to departure.
Must have valid ticket. Subject to space available.
For those of you travelling back from Australia, there's this company called Jetta Express that specialises in Excess Baggage, but at a very attractive rate...
Cheaper than excess or unaccompanied baggage.
May be sent before or after departure.
No ticket required. Guaranteed uplift.
Pickup from the door
for example... rates FROM Australia TO Kuala Lumpur
Airline Excess Baggage: AUD 25.00/kg
Unaccompanied Baggage: AUD 4.30/kg
Jetta Excess Baggage: AUD 2.30 - AUD 3.50/kg
More info: http://www.jetta.com.au
Currently i think there's a company operating EXCESS BAGGAGE service at KLIA as well... you can check out their price and service, it's usually cheaper than if you pay for overweight charge
