Checked luggage: pros and cons

Travelling with a checked luggage has some good points, for example the higher volume and weight. You should note that in case of stopover you don’t need to check your luggage, you will get it back directly at your arrival airport.
It has also some negative points: you departure should take longer as you need to queue up also for your luggage. You can get your luggage back only when you arrive at your destination airport. This means that it can be lost or damaged. There are also limitations on the weight around 23kg max.
