Elite members can use their privilege and get a higher checked baggage allowance. Policy varies depending on the class of travel, route, and fare type. Here is a general guide to the baggage allowance:
Carry-on/Cabin Baggage Policy
China Airlines allows passengers to bring one piece of carry-on baggage on board and one personal item, such as a purse or laptop bag. However, the carry-on baggage should not exceed 56 cm x 36 cm x 23 cm (22 in x 14 in x 9 in) and should weigh no more than 7 kg (15 lbs).
NOTE: Bulkhead seats lack under-seat storage, so all carry-on and cabin luggage must be stored in the overhead compartment during takeoff and landing.
China Airlines' checked baggage allowance varies depending on the class of travel, route, and fare type. Generally, passengers in Economy Class can contain one or two pieces of baggage weighing up to 23 kg (50 lbs). Passengers in Premium Economy Class and Business Class can generally check two or three pieces of luggage weighing up to 32 kg (70 lbs). However, the baggage allowance is different when applying fares; for more information on this, please visit www.china-airlines.com/us/en/fly/prepare-for-the-fly/baggage/baggage-rules

- Cabin baggage – passengers can book a seat to transport their cabin baggage.

This should be done 48 hours before the flight, and confirmation must be received beforehand. Most importantly, the cabin baggage must comply with the carry-on baggage weight and measurement specifications.
- Music instruments – Passengers can carry small appliances as hold baggage. However, they should not exceed 100 x 36 x 23cm measurements and 7kg weight.
China Airlines Baggage Policy FAQ's
Baggage is measured by length + width + height. The dimensions of each measurement are added together to compose the total number of linear inches/ centimeters.
China Airlines offers transportation of several sports equipment items for no additional charge, unless it exceeds the checked baggage allowance. So in that case excess baggage fees are applicable.
