With the competitive price in low cost carrier, the carrier company try to maximise their revenue by just offering travellers with the maximum 20kg bag per traveller. Some low cost carrier even put the maximum of 10kg per bag per traveller. Some low cost carrier even charge extra for 3rd checked in baggage, and some airlines is also planning to charge extra for hand luggage.
