Anyone fly LH with a full winecheck?

#1 Post by LoriMcLaughlin » March 13th, 2019, 9:01 am

Traveling to Sicily on LH. We’ve had no issues bringing a full wine check back on AA or UA, but this time we are flying LH metal. Anyone have any issues?

Looks like people have had trouble with LH. I know Alitalia also gives people trouble.

Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

lol - saw your name and thought "hmm... doubt you're flying internationally any time soon..." so close.

I’ve only had trouble in Alitalia once and it was when you could carry wine onboard. They made me check it. Generally we haven’t had trouble in Germany or at FRA - but haven’t checked it on LH before.

They took my full wine check but charged me for my carry on because it weighed more than 18 lbs
