    Hi Lenore,I understand your upset (and your friend’s), but what you describe is no new policy. The 2 x 50 lbs. you mentioned applies to and from North America (“piece concept”). On all other routes checked luggage is restricted to total weight 20/30/40 kilograms for Economy/Business/First (“weight concept”) rather than by number of pieces plus weight. Even having worked for Lufthansa for 11 years, I do not understand the logic in this; however I do know that all IATA carriers observe these concepts as described. You and your readers are right – the current environment has made formerly enjoyable travel much more stressful. Kind regards, Michelle, Lufthansa USA
