Baggage: 50 lbs X 2 per passenger?

May I clarify the baggage policy for 2 checked bags.

 

Still confused even reading some of the southwest baggage policies.

 

Is it 50 lbs each times 2 per passenger?

 

So since we there are 3 of us, we will have 6pcs of 50lbs in total?

 

Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback. 

 

Does it mean 50lbs each luggage? 

 

So I can check in 6 luggages for the 3 of us weighing 50lbs each luggage? 

 

Sample: I have 2 luggages which weighs 50lbs each (which makes it 100lbs).

 

That is a total of 300lbs for each passenger for the 3 of us? 

 

Thanks again.

No - up to 100 lbs per person in the form of up to two 50 lb bags each.

 

If only one bag is checked by a passenger then the  limit will be 50 lbs, that passenger doesn't get the unused allowance.

 

To clarify a heavier bag than 50 lbs is allowed, but you must pay an overweight bag fee.

 

The FREE limit is 1 or 2 bags per person, each bag weighs 50 lbs or less individually.
