    Why not give the airline a call?
    Then let us know the outcome.
    Exploring! :)

    this is actually the fastest way to find out

    yet no one picks up the phone to call.

    this is the TEXT and e-Mail generation...

    to them... a phone is for games and texting... not calling

    calling involves something that we have become unfamiliar with.... something called TALKING.

    I've carried tripods on board air Asia's and tiger's fights before. But do note that during those occasions I have my wife with me so she was carrying it in a tripod bag along with her small handbag.

    Please do be mindful of hand carry restrictions on these flights.

    I've packed the my tripods in my check in luggage the other times I flew solo.

    I would say depend on airport (maybe). I took SIA from Singapore to Tokyo which I am allowed. For returned which is same airline but I can't. Did not bother to ask why & just check in my tripod.

    Hmm so we are allowed to have 2 bags while we board the plane? In addition to a backpack, we are allowed to have a tripod bag too? So in a way we can bring a backpack plus a smaller bag (let's say a hadley pro) containing our DSLR?

    Actually you are only allowed a single bag plus a personal item. Please check the respective airline's website on their definition of personal item.

    No. You are only allowed to hand-carry one bag.

    I think it will be better if you can check-in your lugguages to the baggage and hand carry your camera, lens and tripod (packed into a bag)
    You will need to be $23 over the counter for the baggage fee.

    This is what I did 2 weeks ago.

    I think it depends on luck, just went to Bali over the long weekend via Jetstar and I brought 2 carry on bags, one laptop bag and one camera sling bag, but of course both added together are within the cabin size limit.

    U can bring 1 laptop bag which is not part of the "1 carry on bag" requirement.
    Additionally, u can also bring a backpack (1 carry on bag) and a camera bag which is also not part of the "1 carry on bag".

    Not sure about tripods.
    Hope that helps.

    Yes bro Ricleo is correct, depends a lot on luck, as well as the airport staff, size of your main bag, and how full the flight is.

    And a small laptop bag is considered a personal item.
