we're flying skyservice and they told us 20 kg
 
 
  Free baggage allowance varies with some destinations. As a rule, each passenger is allowed a maximum of two pieces of checked luggage, the combined weight of both pieces not to exceed 20 kg (44 lbs). Please refer to your airline ticket for your exact baggage allowance.
 
 Total dimension of checked bagged is not to exceed 158 cm (62 inches) (length + width + height) per piece.
 
 
 Excess baggage will be charged at $7 per kg for each direction. Please note, there is an overall weight limit permitted on the aircraft, therefore we cannot guarantee that excess baggage will be permitted on the aircraft.

I know that some of you have seen this news report on Global but I have seen nothing about this on the television news in the East and can't find any news stories on the internet.  I remember when Air Transat had the incident with the rudder in the winter that it was in our news reports that week. I guess my question is how come no news down here or am I missing something  :confused:    :confused:   Thanks for the photos, Flopnfly!

We have heard very little about it here either.
 
 I've only seen the small clip on Global news, and nothing in the papers.
 
 Even searching the internet, nobody seems to know anything.

This was the news on YYZnews.com
 
 
 Skyservice Airlines  (5G/SSV)     a)....one of their Boeing 767-300s   (C-GLMC) was damaged in a hard landing at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on the weekend of May 21st and pictures circulating on the internet clearly show a wrinkled fuselage forward of the wing.   Boeing technicians are assessing the extent of the damage to determine if it should be repaired or possible declared a write-off.     Meanwhile, Skyservice is attempting to sub- charter other aircraft where necessary to meet their obligations to the various Tour Wholesalers.      b)...the Kitchener-Waterloo Record newspaper reports that Signature Vacations will operate the first-ever direct flights from the Kitchener-Waterloo (YKF) airport to Punta Cana this winter on Mondays and on Fridays to Cancun.   All flights will be operated with Skyservice Airbus A320s.

Bulldog, your pictures are much better than the one that I posted a link to when we first found out about this mishap.

Here's a thought I've had in my head today. BF, you mentioned that no one from Sky Services really said anything to the passengers when you got off. I was thinking that, if I was one of the flight attendants on board, I would be pretty much in as much shock as everyone else on that plane. Really, what could they say? They would be in the same boat as everyone else.
 
 I doubt there would be any "official" people around the airport at the exact time that would have the authority represent Sky Services and speak on their behalf. So while it would have been better if someone was there to say something to the passengers, I'm not surprised that nothing happened.
 
 It sounds like they've waited until everyone was home when they can touch base with you.
 
 Anyone, not trying to defend anyone, just some thoughts going through my head today.

I hear you Wolf, in that the staff were likely in shock as well, but let's not forget they are the trained professionals who are taught to be able to handle any emergency situation.  I personally would not be apt to dismiss their lack of response quite so readily.  Bulldog stated in another post (or perhaps another forum  :confused: )that people were actually banged up and kids crying, I think the staff on board that aircraft had an obligation to take control and in the very least assess any medical concerns that may have resulted from the incident.  It sounds as though they pretended to ignore what had just occurred and that is simply wrong.
