Points to note about Benefit excess baggage

  • Benefit excess baggage can only be used on flights on Lufthansa aircraft with Lufthansa flight numbers.


  • If the business travellers with excess baggage change flights within a country or outside their country of departure (e.g. Vienna – Frankfurt / Frankfurt – New York), the relevant number of Benefit points for the flight between the countries involved (i.e. Austria – Germany) will be charged.


  • An excess baggage allowance can only be given with a confirmed reservation. Excess baggage allowances are not possible on waiting-list reservations.


  • Advance booking deadlines for Benefit excess baggage: there is an advance booking deadline of one working day (Mon.-Fri.) before departure. Please note the opening times of your PartnerPlusBenefit Service Centre when booking.


  • You can book Benefit excess baggage in order to increase the maximum weight of your free baggage allowance or to take an additional piece of luggage with you. Please specify your preference when booking.


  • Free baggage allowances depend on the booking class and the passenger’s frequent flyer status. You can find these out from your travel agency, on Lufthansa.com or from the PartnerPlusBenefit Service Centre.


  • The maximum weight per piece of baggage is 32 kg. The maximum dimensions are 158 cm. You can request details from your PartnerPlusBenefit Service Centre.


  • Benefit excess baggage cannot be used for special categories of baggage (e.g. sports baggage).
