Seat Guru says GOL allows a personal item such as:

Bag or backpack with personal items

They point to this GOL page for more information but I find nothing to substantiate that.

Does GOL actually allow a Personal Item in addition to a carry-on?

  • I've traveled on GOL with a personal item, but that's only anecdotal.

    Is there any airline that prohibits a personal item when taking a carry on bag?

  • @Tom - That's a good question! I accidentally found one which causes me problems... plus there are tons of questions here asking the same for various airlines.

  • @Tom good question. Depends on the definition. Many European LCCs will only allow for a personal item if you purchase something extra: premium fare, premium seat, something.

  • @chx (and Itai too) - how about naming those airlines for people's benefit

Yes, Gol allows it and there is no specific restriction on its size and weight.

This is part of a conversation I had with GOL (I had to first explain what I meant by personal item with example of a camera or laptop bag):

GOL: I was checking and I see that you can take a little bag like the one with a camera with no problems additionally to the carry on bag

Itai: Great. Are there any restrictions on the bag? Size or Weight?

GOL: I don't see anyone, it only says little bag with personal items.
