Does anyone know roughly how much PIA charge for additional baggage flying from Heathrow, London to Islamabad?

Doesn't it depend on how heavy it is? [scratching head]
I may be wrong but I think it depends on the weight.

Yes it does depend on how much you are overweight by. I just wondered if anyone knew how much they charge per kilo.

i think its 10 or 12 pounds per kg.
i was 20kg over when i was going Karachi couple of years ago.
u can 'negotiate' a much lower price though. i ended up paying 150 pounds in the end.

Didn't realise it was as much as that...it's probably just as expensive as sending things through the post then cos I recently sent a 2kg package to Islamabad and I was charged just under £20 for that.

Actually I don't know about PIA from UK but here from US, everytime my handcarry was over 8kg for PIA, I never had to pay.
I don't know about now though since they are gonna pay much more attention

Well with the hand baggage, I always have waaaaay over 8kg in that cos they don't weigh it. Last time I went I denied having hand baggage (had someone else minding the bag ) as I already had my handbag and a laptop bag and thought they might get funny about a third piece of carry on.
Obviously in light of recent events I expect everything will be much stricter now.
Don't want to use another airline as I like to fly direct to Islamabad from london and also PIA allow 40kg as opposed to emirates and gulf air who only allow around 20kg.
It's still never enough though.

Yeah I like PIA. Only if they would change the stop @ Manchester Airport and make it direct from Chicago-to-Lahore
O Lahore!!! Where are thou? O How I long to see you again!
