  1. I am flying with Vueling from Barcelona to Stockholm on the 12th of February. I missed booking for check in luggage. I just talked to the travelagenzy and they have added a check in luggage for the flight by I have not paid for it yet. Can I pay it online? And what is the cost for 20 kg?

  2. I am travelling on Veuling Gatwick to Barcelona next Monday 13th November. I have checked in one bag which is a set of golf clubs within and outer protective bag. It will be well within the weight allowed. Am I right in thinking that this is OK? Thanks – Derek
