Default Trip to the UK - flying with Qantas - Luggage allowance?

Hi, I have just checked my Qantas booking and it says that I will have 23kg luggage allowance the whole way through, from Brisbane to Belfast, has anybody had any problems once they get onto their domestic flight from London with that amount of luggage?

Trust Qantas, they aren't lying You'll have been checked all the way through from Brisbane, it'll be fine - unless you've booked bucket price with someone like Ryanair where you have to pay extra for baggage and get no free allowance

No, but I had problems when I came home from London. Thanks to stocking up on Le Creuset, 23kg wasn't enough!

Cheers

Booked flights through to Scotland and with Qantas, no issues with 23kg each.
If it were to Heathrow then we'd booked a separate flight up North I reckon there might have been a problem.
Hope you don't get the Qantas plane we came back with, no inflight entertainment due to "software" fault.
Going out was good though on the A380

Just got back, A380 from London to Sing, 747 from Sing to Syd.

747 feels like a beat up old relic these days.

Yeah, the 747 we were in on the way back "looked" tired when we approached to go on it.








All was confirmed when we were in it.....
