I did some sleuthing for you - as I was also looking for an upgrade to my normal travel bag. Searches for sample case, catalog case and pilot case led to some promising finds. However all of these are designed to hold documents, so don't expect a lot of utility out of them. They do fit your requirements - they open from the top, are wheeled. The largest I ...

If the airline found the bag AND you provided a specific delivery address when you filed the lost bag report, then they are responsible for delivering the bag to you at that address. If the airline found the bag, but you did not specify a alternate delivery address (ie you were still traveling or such), then they are responsible for informing you (which ...

Here's a list of stores at LAX: http://www.lawa.org/tenantLAXResult.aspx?airport=4&category=38&sindicator=qs Based on the name, "Luggage Store - Before TSA" (Ticketing Level) can probably help you out. Depending on your budget there's also a Coach store in the Great Hall as well. I'm sure there are other stores that sell luggage as well but I can't ...

Straight razors are allowed in checked-in luggage all over the world. Anyway, they are not allowed in hand luggage as they can be used to harm someone. I will list three sources that regulate this, TSA (US), EASA (EU), IATA (the rest of the world), these rules are not enforced all over the world, but as long as these three organizations have the same rules ...

"Good wheeled backpack" is considered an oxymoron by most serious backpackers, myself included. Wheels add extra weight, rigidity, and break-ability to what otherwise could be a perfect bag. However, if health concerns dictate the use of wheels, there's not much that can be done about the requirement. That doesn't mean there are products that will actually ...

The following is "common sense" based on my own travels. Officialdom may decide otherwise. If I was doing this I'd try very hard to get an official answer to this in advance and very preferably in writing. I certainly would not trust only the advice of well meaning people like me on an internet site :-). If you have a Singapore visa and the two ...

Eagle Creek makes quite a few wheeled backpacks, that come with a suspension type strap and waistband set up. One model you can remove the harness system to reduce the backpack's weight if you are traveling somewhere that you won't need the straps. And contrary to backpacker purists beliefs, are comfortable to carry as a backpack. They are not form ...

The answer is no. Your one ‘cabin bag’ covers a bag, laptop case, brief case, handbag, bumbag, rucksack, carrier bag or wedding dress carrier. Motorcycle helmets are also allowed as/within cabin baggage (providing they follow the relevant size dimensions). Please note that all these items will be classed as your one cabin bag.

Unknown, but: Long ago I locked a suitcase full of electronic gear when travelling SF-London. The customs men came out and asked for the key. Thoughtful of them - a broken lock would have been within the rules. Alas, the case also held a large container of dairy whitener placed in it during packing. It has a clip shut spout for normal use AND the whole top ...

The TSA Restriction The restriction you mentioned does not apply to all flights towards all destinations. It is a new rule which is slowly being implemented across continents. If I am not mistaken the US were the first, followed by UK. I could not find any official reference covering the status by country. All I stumbled upon were local online newspaper ...

There are no rules against wrapping your bags with plastic film. If TSA decides they want to inspect your bag, they will cut the film off and will not re-wrap it. So it is up to you to decide to pay to have it wrapped and hope TSA doesn't cut it off wasting your money. If you are flying in from an international destination and connecting/rechecking to a ...

The reply is actually on the site of the TURKISH AIRLINES: Damage or Loss If damage to the baggage is of a kind that can be immediately ascertained (such as broken wheels or handles, tears or missing contents) the passenger must, on the same day and before leaving the arrival hall, applying to Station Lost and Found Offices with their Travel ticket, ...

According to their site: Lost Baggage Passengers whose baggage is missing at reclaim must, on the same day and before leaving the arrival hall, have a Property Irregularity Report (PIR) prepared by applying to Station Lost and Found Offices with their Travel ticket, Baggage tag, Identity document (identity card, passport). The Property Irregularity ...

Assuming you have to recheck luggage (if you have a single ticket, check with Icelandair before you do anything rash!) it will be cutting it rather close. It will probably take at least 20 minutes until your bag is on the carousel, longer than that in busy periods. The baggage reclaim is in Terminal 3 for all international arrivals, and you then have to ...

I have one of these (or see here also) , seems to be exactly what you're looking for. Its main selling point is the garment bag that you can wrap around it. But whether you choose to use that or not, the top unzips completely and you can use it for access inside. Actually, if you have wrapped up the garment bag around it, the top is the only way to get ...

A wheeled duffel bag may suit your purpose to a degree. Most are designed to be laid down and opened, but because of their soft sides and wrap around zipper, they can be opened part way while sitting upright and items retrieved or put in. But like most top loading bags, the stuff at the top is easily accessible, the stuff further down requires grasping ...

As an Indian passport holder, you would not be allowed through immigration unless you apply for and receive a visa in advance. (see here) And if your friend does not have a valid ticket, then they can't get past security. So, unfortunately, it seems like you will probably need to bring your bag with you to Malaysia.

@mkennedy already quoted easyjet's policy but I can add a bit of personal experience. I fly regularly with them and I have often seen other passengers being asked to fit a laptop bag or a handbag in their carry-on, lest they have to check it in. Sometimes people get away with a small purse or a plastic bag but they really mean one bag in total and seem to be ...

There shouldn't be a problem from a customs and immigration or airline handling perspective. Just wipe it clean and call it a day. Worse things have spilled from customer luggage (dirty diapers, colostomy bags, etc. etc.). However..... if it was DEET based, then you should know that DEET will weaken nylon and other plastics. You should keep an eye out for ...
