    Default hand-carrying onto airplane

    What's the latest on the hand-carrying policy for boarding planes? If I remember, each passenger can only have 1 hand-carry, although many times this policy is waived.

    I will be going on a trip, and will be bringing my laptop and DSLR. Definitely want to hand-carry them in. However, I don't have a bag big enough to hold both equipment together, so I will have 2 bags. Will there be a problem boarding the plane?

    The bags are likely to be:
    1. Crumpler 15 Love
    2. A back-pack or laptop bag for my 15.4" laptop.

    Thanks,

    Get the new Lowepro Computrekker Plus AW!!

    One bag fits all!! Got mine at Cathay abt $175. The bag which you can dump almost everything in.





    If you find it too heavy to carry it around in the airport, you can always get a roller (costs abt $30 at travel shops). It becomes Roller Computrekker AW! Haha....

    One personal bag (can be laptop bag) is allowed apart from the one handluggage.......apparently, that perosonal bag is not considered handluggage :-)

    And I always carry my tripod like an M16.........they think I am an air marshall....everybody feels safe.

    thanks, pple. actually, this is a biz trip but I thought may be a good opp to go there to take some pixs. I can afford to have my laptop or camera check in.

    thankfully, I don't think I need to bring a tripod.
