    Carry on Restrictions

    Restrictions on what you can carry into an aircraft cabin are subject to sudden change. For example, the UK has recently banned laptops and tablets on flights from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. Individual airlines also change their policies regularly and the detail of what you can carry on varies quite considerably from airline to airline. BA will allow one cabin bag 56cmx45cmx25cm plus one laptop/handbag 40cmx30cmx15cm with a combined weight allowance of 23kg. Ryanair will allow one cabin bag 55cmx40cmx20cm plus a small bag 35cmx20cmx20cm with a combined weight allowance of 10kg. Always check with your airline before travelling to ensure that you are complying with carry on restrictions.
