AeroMexico Baggage Fees Explained

Folks, are complicated. There is a different price for baggage for every single global region the planes fly to. Each additional piece of baggage costs a different, increasing, amount to bring or check. If your baggage goes over the sliding size scale, you pay more. In fact, the section of the plane you're sitting in actually changes the allowed size, weight, and cost of each piece of luggage as well.

You can find the entire AeroMexico baggage fee chart here.

Flying in the Main Cabin
  • Free: 1 Personal Item and 1 Carry-On
  • 22 lbs for both pieces together
  • No bigger than 21.5"x15.7"x10" each
  • No free checked luggage
  • Max 50 lbs per paid checked bag
Flying Business Class
  • 1 Free Carry-On
  • 49 lbs
  • Up to 21.5"x15.7"x10" each
  • 1 Free Personal Item
  • 6.6 lbs
  • 2 Free Checked Bags
  • 70 lbs
  • Max linear dimensions 62"
Additional BagsUsing flights in the US as an example, additional bags can get pricy starting from the first checked bag if you're not flying business class.
  • $30 first checked bag
  • $55 second checked bag
  • $180 each for 3 checked bags ($540 total)
  • $200 each for 4-10 checked bags

Flying to other countries, the prices also increase if you need to check additional bags at the gate instead of booking the bags when you buy the ticket. And yes, you saw that right. At 3 bags+, it's a huge amount for each bag, no longer stacking the cost of one bag at a time. That means the grand total of 3 bags is $540, not $30+$55+3rd bag. That third bag, effectively, costs $455. Not a great surprise if you needed to bring an extra suitcase at the last minute.

Over-Weight Luggage
  • $100 for 50 lbs - 70 lbs
  • $200 for 70 lbs - 100 lbs

Oversized baggage fees stack on top of the already exorbitant fees just to check the baggage. If one suitcase weighs too much, you're out 100-200 dollars.
