Sri Lankan Airlines - Excessive Baggage Charge

Anyone know what are the terms?

AFAIK, I can only get the following info:

http://www.paylessflights.com/en/air...110/index.html

Business Class - free baggage allowance of 40 kg + 2 pieces of carry-on baggage up to 7 kg/15 lbs each and measuring no more than 18''x 14"x 6" (46 x 36 x 20 cm).
Economy Class - free baggage allowance of 30 kg + 1 piece of carry-on baggage up to 7 kg/15 lbs and no more than 18"x14"x6" .

No where can I find what would happen/cost if extra.

It would depend on your routing. Its usually calculated on something like 1% of the full economy fare per kg. So you have to call UL reservations and ask what their calculation is.

So if the full fare economy fare between CMB and LHR is say USD$3000, then the excess is US$30 per kg. It is not based on what your ticket is.

Most airlines would allow an excess of 1-5 kg extra in economy and 5-10kg extra for Business class. But like I said, its 'some'. UL may be very strict about it.
