PAL regular and promo tickets cover free 7 kilos cabin baggage and free checked baggage for both domestic and international destinations. The Philippine Airlines Free Checked Baggage Allowance (FBA) depends on destination and fare family/brand.

When the luggage you will be bringing during your flight exceeds the free checked baggage allowance of PAL, it is advisable to purchase a Prepaid Baggage Allowance, so you can save on baggage fees. Pre-booked checked baggage is cheaper compared to purchasing it at the airport.
