The carry on luggage comes in handy when on a flight. Picture: The Boeing Company.

I almost miss my flight. My forehead is sweaty and I panic as I cannot find a place to store my carry on luggage. The compartment that is allocated to me is fully occupied and there is no other available space to accommodate mine. I end up keeping the bag under the seat in front of me. Since that day two years ago, I have learned that by taking a carry on brings responsibility. I have learned that there is an art to the carry on luggage.

I am one of those passengers who takes a carry on with me whenever I fly. I believe that you can never have enough items with you when travelling. Here are some quick tips for passengers with carry on luggage:

Choose the right bag

Remember to carry just 7 kilograms of carry on luggage with you. My suggestion is to weigh the bags before you leave for the airport. Choose bags that can fit in the overhead compartment as keeping large bags are prohibited on the plane.

Keep the essentials

Try to stick to the essentials when you pack your carry on luggage. Try to avoid taking any gels and liquids that exceeds 100ml or any items that could have been packed in your check in luggage.

Carry an extra pair of clothing

Anything could happen on a plane that may require a change of clothing. By taking an extra pair of clothing, one can prepare for any disaster or for the weather at your selected destination.

Arrive early

No one wants to have their bags stored 10 rows away from where they sit, therefore it is a good idea to board early. This will allow you to store your bags in the compartment allocated to you. There are travellers who end up storing their bags in other compartments because they arrive late, which could cause conflict among travellers. The last thing you need on your holiday is a fight.
