Baggage Allowance

Carry-on Baggage

One standard carry-on piece within typical dimensions (~55cm x 40cm x 23cm) and a weight limit of around 7kg (15.4lbs) was likely permitted. Additional personal items like purses or laptop bags might have been allowed depending on space and policy variations throughout the years.

Checked Baggage

Most likely offered one free checked bag with a weight limit in the range of 20kg (44lbs) to 30kg (66lbs), similar to common allowances for domestic airlines in Bangladesh and South Asia. Additional bags or exceeding the weight limit likely attracted excess baggage fees.

Check-In Information

Online Check-In

This option, likely available 24 hours before the flight, allowed passengers to print boarding passes at home or at airport kiosks, streamlining the process at the airport.

Airport Check-In

For those who preferred or couldn't check-in online,airport desks catered to baggage drop-off and document verification.

Cabin Class

There's a very small chance the airline might have offered two classes at some point, especially during its later years when it briefly operated an Airbus A310-300 for longer international flights. However, no concrete evidence or specific details about any potential Business Class have been confirmed.
