Use personal items wisely
For airlines, it is standard procedure to allow travelers to bring a carry-on bag and one personal item aboard the plane. Each airline has its own requirements for the personal item’s size, though you can carry items like laptop bags, backpack or purses on the plane.
The advice here is, understand your personal item allowance. If you need some items like your laptop, do not just carry a tiny purse – bring a larger bag that you can fit easily under your seat but still provides you with extra storage space. This will be helpful when you need to keep all the things you want on hand while on your flight within your arms’ reach.
