Aer Lingus baggage

    Just a quick one.

    When adding an extra checked baggage (We want to bring a second case, we already have 1 x 20kg bag booked) there are two options.

    1. 20kg in 2 bags under my name
    2. Add a 20kg bag to anotherperson checking in

    The prices are different, for 20kg x 2 its an extra €25 each way but if I want to add a 20kg bag for my wife its an extra €42.

    Am I missing something obvious here? Surely its the same thing? Why the price difference. I dont want to chose the cheaper option and then told "Oh no you should have chosen a 20kg option under another passenger"

    Does 20kg in two bags mean two bags with 20kg in total? If so it would explain why it's cheaper.

    No its 40kg in 2 bags, thats what was confusing, will see what happens anyway
