Got a Bilikiki trip coming up soon. Trying to figure out getting all our gear there without paying a fortune in overweight charges.

 

Their Website says only 30kg check in and 7 kg carry on. You can get an extra 10kg if you join their Belama Club but we have run into broken web links and unanswered phone calls trying to sign up.

 

Has anybody been recently? Just wondering how strictly they apply their limits and in particular the carry ons.

 

Any tips appreciated

I used to fly with them regularly.  For checked baggage, they had an allowance for "sports equipment" that you could arrange in advance, so try contacting the airline directly through their Brisbane number. They might be able to help with Belama Club also. For carryon, its hit and miss, as they contract with an Australian service company at the airport and sometimes weigh at the gate.

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately the sports equipment allowance doesnt exist anymore. Hoping we will be able to sign up for Belama on arrival in Brisbane  as that seems like the only way we might be able to get a break.
