Suppose an Economy Class traveler holding an RBD M ticket (checked baggage allowance: 2 pieces, 23 kg each) flies from Taipei to Los Angeles, U.S., and checks in two pieces of baggage (20 kg and 23 kg) and one set of surfboard(sum of length, width and height is 300 cm, weighs 15 kg). Because the surfboard does not exceed the weight limit of 23 kg for a single piece of baggage and it is included in sport equipment exceptions without size limit, passenger will only need to pay a one-time excess baggage charge US$ 180.
