Baggage is used both as a singular and plural.

What about luggage or luggages?

What about the reference given in which it is mentioned the plural of baggage is baggage?

You can never say "luggages" but you can say "suitcases, " "bags, " "pieces of luggage" or "a luggage set. " There could be some contexts in which one of those would be more precise or clear than "luggage". Luggage is considered collective, meaning many things rather than for a single item. Luggages is simply not a word.

However, baggage is a plural noun of baggage as per the dictionary. I wonder why it can't be baggages?
