My husband and I are flying out of Detroit this week for a glorious week in Punta Cana, and we are very confused about luggage limits on our flight.
We booked an Apple Vacation to the Iberostar Bavaro through our local travel agent here in SW Ontario. She told us that we are only allowed to check in one bag each, with a weight limit of 22lbs. But USA3000’s website states that you are allowed 50lb for the first bag (free). We wondered if the limit is less for charter flights so we called the airline (twice) to confirm this and the answer is the same - 50lbs on all flights, charter or not.
We tried to clarify this with our travel agent again but she still insists that it’s still 22lbs per checked bag, 1 bag per person. We are not sure where she is getting this - could she be using information meant for Canadian carriers/charters?
So - Has anyone here flown USA3000 with Apple Vacations out of Detroit (or anywhere) and heard of this 22lb limit? Is our travel agent out to lunch? Are we?? ???
We are not bringing a whole lot of stuff with us, but we would hate to leave things behind trying to stay under 22lbs only to find we could have brought them after all!
Thanks for your help!
