Flydubai to Port Sudan

03 April 2014 - 01:24 AM

Hello Anyone,


After buying a ticket from a discount travel agent, onetravel.com (AKA cheapoair.com), I discovered that my ticket did not entitle me to any checked baggage allowance at all - and only 7 K carry-on. When I later tried to purchase a baggage allowance, neither the travel agent nor the airline (Flydubai) would sell it to me. Flydubai told me that, since I have no allowance, I would have to pay $10/K during check-in for any checked bags, but there was no guarantee that any of my luggage would be allowed aboard at that time. The guy at Flydubai seemed to enjoy giving me this bad news when I talked to him on the phone.


Has anyone out there had recent experience flying between Dubai and Port Sudan? I'm trying to guess how much trouble I'll actually have getting my stuff to and from PS. Are the people at check-in likely to be as unaccommodating as their agents? Is it likely that my carry-on will be weighed? Any advice to sort this out?
