Outside of an emergency evacuation or similarly dire situation, I cannot think of any reason why a civil authority would ban a person from purchasing multiple seats. After all, it is not uncommon for people to purchase an additional seat to carry items like musical instruments or pets, or because they do not fit into a single seat. In consideration of this, ...

Short answer to the question in the topic: yes. It may depend on the airline but e.g. EasyJet explicitly states "including handles and wheels" and I would say it is a general rule. In your case it may be not allowed. Size may be checked at the gate by having you put your bag into a box/cage of those dimensions. Obviously, if the handle gets in a way, it ...

Liquids and paste-like substances are prohibited, meaning that anything moist or canned in oil, brine, fruit juice, syrup, water or any other liquid will be prohibited too.

You may of course purchase an extra seat for luggage. This is common in a few situations when one cannot be separated from large cargo, the most obvious one being for transportation of musical instruments that are too fragile to go in the hold and too large to go in the cabin as hand luggage. You cannot keep your laptop on the seat during take off or ...

No, they don't. Security looks for weapons and bombs; if it's not either, they're not interested. Of course, there's always the off chance that you'll run into some particularly zealous and clued-in inspector with a fetish for lithium batteries, but realistically I wouldn't worry about it. Also, 90% of the regulation you link to is about transporting ...

Liquid in the Can Makes the Whole Can Liquid The issue with canned food is not the food itself but rather the liquid suspension in which it is preserved - brine, oil, sauce, water, etc. Because the can contains some liquid, the whole item will understandably be treated as a liquid container. Your canned food will therefore be subject to the 100ml rule ...

According to the FAQs regarding IATA "Cabin OK": IATA is a standard-setting organization. Is this new carry-on size a new standard for the airline industry? No. Those who participate are not being asked to change their existing requirements. Some or all may continue to accept bags larger than those qualifying for the IATA Cabin OK logo. Actually, ...

Upon TSA security check I put those bags and camera into the containers. Everything was fine - no one ...

45x38x11 cm is above the size that Ryanair say they will definitely allow in the cabin (35x20x20 cm) but below the maximum size of hand luggage (55x40x20 cm) so if it's your only piece of hand luggage you might be allowed to take it on, and if not it will be carried in the hold for free. In my experience, when they insist that passengers gate check their ...

It is over the size in two dimensions. It will not fit in the measuring frame. And I have never heard that Ryanair would allow anything that might bring them money when they keep to the rules. I would not risk it, the best you can expect is gate checking for free, the worst is a big fee for check-in luggage that has not been announced by internet. I have ...

Yes of course. Many people carry two cellphones all the time, one for work and one for personal purposes. Since you intend to leave the cellphones behind in Philippines, customs fees or import taxes may apply on arrival.

No. There is no right (for you as a passenger) to have carry-on luggage; and as safety of the aircraft is paramount, having no place to stow luggage in the cabin is a risk - as it can turn any item into a projectile if there were turbulence. So the airline is well within their right to stow the luggage in the cargo hold. Further, many times if this is the ...

Warning: this answer is not based on experience in India, but rather experience with importing goods in other countries. I suppose this knowledge is transferable but you definitely want a more India-experienced answer. Make sure you can prove to the custom what you are saying regarding where you bought the laptop, one laptop overheating & so on. Bills ...

In my experience on US airlines, the distinction is whether you are on a regional or mainline flight. On regional flights, you usually get your gate-checked bag back at the gate at your connecting airport; on mainline flights, it is usually checked to your final destination. Mainline flights are the typical flights most people think of: you are on a Boeing ...

After my research, you are able to take these 2 cellphones in your carry-on luggage, if they are in airplane mode because its restricted to have cellphone which is at (turn-on) profile with you but you also carry these things in your equipment which is in Separate part of plane........
