We would like to update you on a new feature for the check-in screen which will now allow you to enter the weight of each piece of baggage separately and also to insert the weight of carry-on luggage.
In order to check-in a passenger with multiple pieces of baggage and a carry-on, first, click the button and proceed to enter the weight of the first baggage, add as many lines of baggage (NOPs) as needed and mark on the COW checkbox for carry-on baggage.
Once you click the save button, the system will calculate the total baggage weight and the carry-on weight separately and it will create the baggage tags for the checked-in luggage.
The first line will be the total weight of the checked baggage and carry-on baggage.
It is also possible to add the carry-on baggage weight and NOP to the manifest templates (Administration >Manifest Templates)
Overweight baggage check-in permission
Additionally, we have added a new permission 'Restrict overweight per user' (Administrations > Company settings) which you can activate and will limit the baggage to be checked-in according to the baggage allowance in destinations/fares setup.
On User settings - we have added a new permission 'Allow user overweight check-in' which you can allow users to insert overweight baggage during the check-in process.
You can check the baggage allowance by hovering over the Route/Class.
