What can I take on the plane as hand luggage?

Please note that passengers can only take ONE suitcase onto the plane. It must be no bigger than 55cm x 22cm x 35cm and weigh no more than 10kg.

You can also take one small laptop bag or handbag that can fit under the seat in front of you. If you have two bags, their total weight cannot be more than 10kg. If your bag is too big or too heavy, you will not be allowed to take it onto the plane. Staff will put it in the hold for you and you will have to pay extra.

Please make sure mobile phones and other devices are fully charged so that security staff can check them.

Liquids in bottles bigger than 100ml are allowed on board if you buy them in the airport shops after you've passed security. 

We hope you enjoy your flight!

Do you like to fly with only hand luggage?

I think it will not possible because when I need to fly from one place to another there will many luggage with me during travel. Every plane can allow to bring luggage upto some specified weight that will go in hold and the hand luggage they will allow if the weigh is under 10kg but this depends on each plane policy.

Do you like to fly with only hand luggage? 

I have not traveled by plane but it would be nice to travel with only hand luggage because it would be lighter and more comfortable during the whole trip.

I have never traveled by plane and have no plans to do so soon, however I think it is better to travel only with hand luggage as it costs you less money and you feel more comfortable, you waste less time and you avoid problems that may arise.

Yes, surely. One luggage is too enough to put in your laptop, headphones, some clothes. The more your bags getting light, the more your flight would be comfortable.

When I traveling solo, I prefer flying with just carry-on luggage because I appreciate simplicity. However, when I traveling with my family, which include two kids, we require additional luggage to accomodate all the the necessary items, making checked baggage a necessity

Yes, I like it. This makes it possible to be mobile not only at airports but throughout the entire trip.
