Get the Most from Your Use of Carry-On Baggage

Posted by Joe on 4/4/2013 to Luggage
Recent airline rules have made checking baggage so unappealing that using carry-on baggage is more and more attractive. I've used carry-on bags exclusively for most of my recent plane flights. It enables my quick exit off the plane and out of the airport which suits me just fine.

Using carry-on baggage requires following some basic guidelines set by the airlines. It is unlawful to have certain items in the cabin, so itís wise not to pack them in a carry-on bag. Sharp scissors, knives, guns, long tools, some sporting goods, many martial arts paraphernalia and packaged liquid amounting to more than 3.4 ounces should not be taken on a plane. When you walk through the security check line any banned items will be found and removed. Individuals wishing to use carry-on bags should take caution and be sure to read the carry on guidelines before boarding the plane.

The size limit is 45-51 linear inches. The actual measurements are around 22" x 14" x 9" which equals 45 linear inches. The maximum weight varies also from 26-40 pounds. You should get specific guidelines for size and weight of carry-on bags from the airline you're flying before you pack your bags.

The items you should plan on taking on board are all items that would be costly or extremely difficult to replace if lost or stolen. These types of items include laptops, cameras, cell phones, medicines, passports and other important documents. I take it a step further and carry on at least one full change of clothing as well as the previous listed items, especially if most of my clothing is in my checked baggage.

If you are on a business trip, carry all your business related paperwork on board in carry-on baggage. This way, you'll be prepared to do business as soon as you land at your destination. Pack your laptop, files,

Any trip that will last only a couple of days, itís worth it to pack lightly and to use one carry-on bag to carry everything. Using carry-on bags is the perfect way to eliminate problems and the benefits are numerous. You avoid waiting in line at the checked baggage carousel. You can go directly to your rental car, taxi, bus or waiting family member. Your possessions will never get lost or stolen.
