I'm taking a flight with LATAM (Buenos Aires - El Calafate, El Calafate - Ushuaia, Ushuaia - Buenos Aires) next month.

When I look on their website for information about the luggage I see this:

enter image description here

It says about a carry-on baggage and its maximum dimensions and weight. Good. But on the last line it says that one may also take one personal item under the seat.

Does this mean that I can take two carry-on baggages?


YES. It means exactly what it says.

The carry-on (suitcase) case must meet those dimensions in order to fit in the overhead bins.

You may also bring another item but it must fit completely under the seat in front of you. If you're pushing the envelop on size, the Gate Agents and/or Flight Attendants are the final judge on 'fit'. There's no point in arguing with them. (For the nitpickers, if the bag does fit in the sizer, I have never seen a Agent still make the passenger check the bag. Similarly, if the overhead latches, I have never seen a Flight Attendant require a bag to be stowed elsewhere or be checked).

Meaning, one item in the overhead and one item under the seat in front of you.

If you have a bulkhead seat, you may place the personal item in the overhead as well.
