For excess and special baggage, flat rates apply. This is also the case for sports baggage that exceeds the free baggage allowance.

Information about and registration of your excess baggage

Due to limited capacity and varying regulations at our partner airlines, we recommend making an early reservation for your excess baggage, either at your travel agency or through the Lufthansa Service Center, giving your booking code.

In Economy/Premium Economy Class, a piece of baggage is considered to be excess baggage when it weighs more than 23 kg (up to a maximum of 32 kg) and/or is larger than 158 cm (the sum of width X + height Y + depth Z up to a maximum of 292 cm).

In Business/First Class a piece of baggage is considered to be excess baggage when its total dimensions are greater than 158 cm up to a maximum of 292 cm.
