Laptops in hand luggage?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I am due to fly out in 2 weeks so plotting what I need to pack. Unfortunately I only have 20kg in the hold, and 7kg as hand luggage with Thai Air.

 

My query is with laptops. Im sure I heard a rumor that you can carry one aditionally to your hand luggage. Is this the case?

 

I really hope its true as I have too many gadgets I need to carry and 7kg wont go very far.

Hi yes you can take a laptop as extra allowance, on top of the hand baggage allowance you already have, we did both ways, with no problem :cute:

Thank you thats great. Its such a measly weight allowance so if I can carry it as extra its a big help.

I agree with you there,

Saying that we had 3 kids with us, and on top of their hand luggage they each had a rucksack, which the airline allowed through as these could be tucked under the seat, also i had a handbag and o/h had a bag containing all our paperwork, again this was just allowed through! Good luck with your extras :cute:

We are flying Emirates and they told me that we can only take 1 piece of hand luggage and laptops in their bags were extra and not allowed.

When we flew over with emirates at the end of June from Gatwick, we didn't ask for it, but they told us that laptops were allowed in addition to the hand luggage allowance.

The Emirates website does say you are only allowed one piece of cabin luggage. Worth checking with them. It might vary if you are on Business/First Class or you are a Skywards Silver or Gold member possibly.

Different airlines have different rules. Normally their website will have the details. Check the FAQ's around carry on luggage.

We each had a laptop as well as very well stuffed cabin sized backpacks for carry on. We were all ok.

 

Do be aware that you have to remove the laptop from the bag/case for security. That can be a bit of a hassle when you are juggling everything else. Especially if you get a line where they want belts and shoes off too!
