Does anybody know for sure whether the AirAsia policy require both main carry on bag and second bag (purse or laptop bag) to be 7 kgs combined or do the 7 kgs refer strictly to the main carry on bag?
I am travelling in SE Asia for 50 days in October - December and have booked several flights with AirAsia (Penang, Singapore and several destinations in Thailand). I spoke via chat with their representatives and they told me that the main baggage can have 7 kgs and the laptop bag 7 kgs, which I find a bit difficult to believe.
My main bag has about 8 kgs (DSLR and weight of the bag are 3 kgs only), so I need to know if I can redistribute some of the weight to a purse of some kind. I do not wish to check in baggage because I am trying to travel light and not fear my baggage will go missing if checked in.
Any help is appreciated. Many thanks!
