As we can see that there are no major differences among airline baggage allowances. This is because of the fact, that even though more established airlines like Emirates and Etihad might be able to increase the allowances and give a serious competition to other airlines in the industry, the airports that process and divert the luggage to different destinations are already at maximum capacity. Carrying millions of tons of baggage through one airport and the next and to do it accurately, without error is a cumbersome project. However, with time there is a slow and steady increase in the baggage allowances of the airlines.
