Question about flying/luggage adяiyanas mami 1 child; 6 angel babies; York, PA, United States 6351 posts

I was wondering, What did you pack/put in your carry on bag? If you took a carry on? Or did you just carry your purse? etc?
Im gonna be flying for the first time in less then a month, and I have no clue about luggage and carry on and what exactly is even permitted in your carry on bag?
So anything anyone can tell me would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.

It depends on where you're going and how long you're going to be gone. I always carried toiletries, a change of clothes, and my entertainment stuff in my carry-on in case my luggage got lost or was late.

I usually fly with both kids so I check as much as I can. When I fly alone I usually just take a carry on. It has all my clothes and everything I will need in it. There are limits on liquids and anything that could be used a weapon.

I always pack some snacks, something to read or keep you occupied on the trip, my laptop and phone charger in my carry-on.

Here your purse isn't considered a carry on. So I take my purse and carry on a small bag for nick nacks, puzzles, snacks etc.

I usually put books or crosswords in my carry on. Something to keep me entertained. I never use a purse for anything.

Are you allowed to use your phone in flight? Here it has to be on airplane mode the whole time. But if not then I'd say you'd only need your purse, plus less to lug around.

I carry my purse all the time lol. so i was wondering if i would even need a carry on.. i mean only other things ill be packing is my shoes and clothes in my luggage..
Im not staying at a hotel or anything so i wont need to pack any shampoo/toiletries or anything like that. Ill just need to make sure i have my cell, cell charger, and my wallet of course.. so im guessing i could keep that in my purse with me?

Depends on the size of your suitcase. If its small enough to fit in an overhead bin and you dont have anything in it you cant take through security then yes you can take it on. Some airlines charge for checked baggage some dont.

Yes, you're allowed to have your carry-on with you and able to access it at all times, just like your purse. You can either stow it under your seat or in the overhead. Here a purse isn't considered a carry-on item either so you're more than welcome to have a purse and carry-on item

All phones have to be in airplane mode.
