When boarding an International flight most airlines
Many airlines penalise passengers who turn up at baggage check-in counters with luggage that is overweight. The penalty for having an overweight bag can be very costly especially if the bag owner has been away for an extended period and luggage is full of shopping, gifts, toys or other items bought on a shopping expedition. To lighten excess baggage, some passengers may attempt to use their cabin bag to carry items to avoid incurring a penalty for having overweight luggage. If you think your luggage may be overweight, it is advisable to either contact the airline directly or carry out research on their online website to find out what the weight allowance policy is for both weighed-in luggage and carry-on bags.
Bag weights when flying on a domestic internal airline may not however be as restrictive, although if you are flying on a small airplane, baggage weight allowances may be strictly enforced to ensure any weighty luggage is not taken on-board.
Many specialist luggage manufacturers now have available in bag stores stylish cabin bags that have been especially designed to make the journeying experience for people travelling on airplanes easier. For example, these days you will find stylish functional cabin bags are mainly made of lightweight nylon fabric or durable polyamid material with polyester interior linings.
Some of these cabin bags are also made with internal pockets, mesh inserts, inside holding straps, clear plastic toilet bags and nylon shoe bags. Another very good feature some bags have is a luggage identity name-tag neatly inserted inside a small pouch stitched to the underside of the bag.
