What are the approximate baggage weight limits and number of bags per person on the smaller inter island airlines? Don't bring up traveling with carry on only as there is no way that my wife will go for that. Her cosmetics and hair products take up half a suit case. I've been beat down too many times trying to get her to reduce the amount.




The quote we received said that the baggage allowance is calculated once they receive the combined weight of the passengers.

It depends on the specific airline.

It really depends on the aircraft. If you fill every seat the amount of luggage that can be carried is pretty limited for most light twins. Most if not all charter outfits will fuel the aircraft for a round trip due to the high cost of fuel ar EIS. This further restricts load.
If your charter outfit asks your weight but does not actually weigh the passengers they can gain a substantial amount of payload. The airplane probably won't fly on one engine using that method but it's common.
If you expect to bring a lot of luggage it's best to charter a aircraft with more seating than you need. That will give you the baggage weight needed.

When traveling with our friends, we always get a larger plane for this reason.

Memory tells me our baggage allowances ranged from 50 - 65 pounds total pp.

All because of lunch at the McDonalds in SJU airport... everyone's weight takes an unexplained bump-up... fascinating
