There are many reasons why items are not allowed in checked luggage. First of all, they can damage the airline’s property. Second of all, they can be very dangerous. I have seen people who have had a drink over a bottle of shampoo, or who have eaten razor blades that were lodged in their hair, and so on. These things are not allowed in checked bags.
If you want to carry on most of the items that are allowed in the airline, you will have to put them in your carry-on. However, there are some exceptions. For example, you are allowed to carry-on one bottle of perfume, and three bottles of shampoo. You also are allowed to carry-on a tube of lipstick, and a compact mirror. Some other liquids that are usually allowed in the carry-on are colognes, lotions, hairsprays, body wash, baby oil, baby powder, sun tan lotion, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, and the like.
There are also some things that are not allowed in carry-on bags. For example, you are not allowed to take money or jewelry in the bags. Nor are you allowed to take any electronic devices. These are for security reasons, and because they may look suspicious. Also, it would be really bad if you bring these things and you forgot them in the airline’s check-in counters. If they find that you have brought something prohibited, they will make you return them to the departure airport gate, where they will be inspected.
Before you leave for your trip, make sure that you have packed everything. Remove all items that you usually carry in your bags. You will find that many items do not go back into your bags. These include backpacks, laptops, jackets, backpacks, purses, and the like. However, these things are allowed in the carry-on bags of certain airlines.
Checked luggage only goes inside the airplane cabin with you. That is why you have to check your bags carefully when you take them off the plane. Check the exact weight of each item. This is to avoid leaving any excess items on the airline carousel. The airline security will be happy to assist you in this matter.
Most travelers wonder what the big deal is about carry-on bags. They think that these bags are very easy to carry onboard airplanes. Actually, they are more difficult to put your items in than the regular carry-on bags. The reason is that regular bags have large windows that allow you to see what is inside.
However, carry-on bags are also easier to carry because they can be opened up much larger than a normal bag. You can place bigger items in the top and bottom areas of a carry-on bag. You may have to check for oversized items when you do this. However, there is no need to worry if you have a normal-sized bag. There are plenty of small bags available that will still hold most of the items that you want to take with you. Just make sure that the items are all packed in one compartment of the carry-on bag.
Although it may seem like travelers are being overly picky, the airlines actually have a very reasonable carry-on luggage policy. If you are a traveler that needs the most amount of space possible, then you should definitely go with a carry-on bag. Checked bags are fine for the times when you simply need extra space but there are many other situations where both carry-on and checked bags are necessary.
