Air Jamaica trims free baggage allowance

Air Jamaica will reduce the free baggage allowance for economy passengers from 70 pounds to 50 pounds per bag, effective Oct. 6. 

Bags weighing between 50 pounds and 70 pounds will be charged $25 per piece, but anything over 70 will have to shipped as cargo.

First-class passengers still can check two bags up to 70 pounds each free of charge.
