It depends on the airline!!!

But in general: For the "Rest of the World" use pax weight of say 90lbs. For the USA increase that to 900lbs!!

I've been retired for nearly 20 years, but when I was flying the standard assumed weights were, IIRC, Female 65 kg, Male 75 kg, hand baggage 3kg, hold baggage 13, 15, 20kg depending on type/length of flight.

 

90lbs, (<41kg) seems rather light. I would have thought weights would have gone up, not down in this day and age.

Not a little joke, more likely a big one.     :P
