    Default Jetstar - cabin baggage and tripod

    Can I carry my tripod in cabin baggage? Just small one, dimensions are ok with cabin baggage restrictions.
    Thank you

    Will be ok in your carry on luggage, though i have been stopped from carrying one onboard without it being in my carry on luggage. Crazy crazy rule

    Yep, same here..i carried my big manfrotto and had no problem. The only reason they can stop u is if you have too many things along with your tripod for your cabin luggage. Happy Clicking

    You may want to check some similar thread in general discussion forum, and a thread about Tiger airway in Travel forum. There got a lot more CSer sharing their experiences there

    It all depends on the airport and airline. Usually 'a lot' means more then 2 pieces. A back pack which follow the size restriction is fine. Another piece of something (like small lap top on a sleeve like case) is also fine. I use to carry a tripod (of about 50 cm folded length on board Jetstar, it is fine).

    I brought my back pack with lens camera and a tripod tied to it. I have another sling bag with clothes --- didnt have any problem. As long as the dimension and weight is within their recomendation I think you shouldnt have any problem.

    If u want .. you can call them up to confirm.

    They are quite chill with tripods. No issues with them on that.
