Can you take two carry-on bags on a plane?

The general guideline is that your personal goods should be able to fit beneath the seat in front of you. The personal item allowance is no reason to pack a second carry-on bag. I've seen individuals do this and take up two overhead bin spaces. The restrictions for carry-on luggage size differ as well. Some airlines limit them to one bag that doesn't exceed 60 inches in length by 40 inches in width or 2.4 feet by 1.2 feet. Other carriers have no size limits.

If you decide to bring a second carry-on bag, keep in mind that it will cost you about $25 each way if you don't load it up with expensive items like clothes. Also note that if you need both seats available for your own goods, you'll have to place one of them in the hold. However, if you want to avoid having your own goods touched by other passengers, you should probably stick with one carry-on.

The most important thing to remember when checking in for your flight is to allow enough time to pass after submitting your online check-in form before heading to the counter with your physical ticket. This gives employees time to enter your information into the computer system and print your boarding pass. It's not uncommon for there to be a short delay between checking in online and receiving your boarding pass at the airport.

There are several factors that determine how long it takes to board a flight.

Can I bring a carry-on and a purse?

Most airlines allow customers to bring a carry-on as well as a personal item such as a backpack, laptop bag, handbag, briefcase, shopping bag, and so on. As a general guideline, your personal item should be less in size than your carry-on luggage and fit below the seat in front of you. The weight limit for each is usually around 10 pounds.

However, some people prefer to leave their purse at the hotel room because they feel it's safer that way or if they plan to go through security again after checking into their flight. If this is the case for you, then you should bring a small clutch or bag to hold your passport, plane ticket, and cash.

You should also consider whether you want to bring a large item with you on the plane. Some larger items cannot be carried onto the plane or into the passenger cabin. These include bikes, skateboards, surf boards, and golf bags. You will need to check these items in at the counter before entering the security line.

Finally, make sure you leave enough time to pass through security and get to your destination on time. Most airports have public transportation systems that can take you close to the airport, but not all cities are well served by public transport so you might want to consider driving or calling a cab instead.

What should I pack in my personal bag for flying?

A carry-on bag with all of your clothing and shoes can fit in the overhead bin, but your personal goods must fit beneath the seat in front of you. It should ideally carry all of your flying essentials, including reading material, devices and headphones, toiletries, and anything else you could need to make the journey more pleasant.

The most important thing is to keep it simple. If you have a lot to take, then you should consider packing a bag before you travel or even better, arrive at the airport early so that you have time to drop off any heavy items.

You should also try to limit the amount of cash, credit cards, ID, and other valuables you bring on board with you. Some countries have specific regulations regarding what you can and cannot carry on board aircraft, so it's best to check with the airline before departing for your trip.

Can I take a carry-on and a backpack on Alaska Airlines?

When traveling with us, you are permitted to bring one carry-on bag and one personal item, such as a handbag, briefcase, or laptop computer. One of the goods should be stored under the seat in front of you, and you should be able to move your own bag into the overhead bin. You can also check any of these items in at the counter before boarding.

There is no limit to the size of your carry-on bag, but we recommend that you keep it below 10% of your checked baggage weight or 20 inches by 22 inches by 8 inches, whichever is first. If your carry-on bag exceeds these limits, you will be charged for oversize luggage.

Your carry-on bag should contain only items that are legal for airline passengers to carry on board aircrafts. These include: bags or containers with liquids or gels; food including raw meat or poultry; oversized books, magazines, or newspapers; sports equipment; weapons; alcohol; aerosols or other flammable substances; and some types of batteries. Bicycles, scooters, and other vehicles cannot be carried on board unless they are dismantled.

You are required to show your passport upon checking in and again when boarding the plane. If you do not have a passport or if your passport expires within six months of your trip start date, then you must provide proof of identity when checking in and at the airport during boarding.
