    I am getting a Lufthansa flight from the USA to Frankfurt, from there I am getting a connecting flight to Delhi. I wish to go Guwahati from there after my tour in Delhi, which would be on a domestic flight. As I plan to stay in India for three weeks, my luggage would be quite a lot, and I was wondering whether I would be able to take all my luggage with from Delhi to Guwahati on the domestic flight?

    I would like to know how much baggage is allowed on domestic flights, and whether it is the same for all flights?

    Which domestic airline provides the maximum amount of baggage?

    As you can see, for the cabin baggage allowances, it's the same for all airlines except for Air India, which has an allowance of 8 kilograms. In contrast to all other airlines which only has a 7 kilograms allowance for the cabin baggage. As for the checked baggage allowances, they are different for the different airlines. It also depends on the class of seat you book. Air India has a good checked baggage allowance at 25 kilograms. Vistara is a good choice as well at 23 kilograms of checked baggage allowance per passenger.

    There you go, I hope this helps you!:)
