What additional items are permitted with your carry-on?
If you’re checking in a cabin bag, but don’t fancy packing your handbag in the pull-along, you’re in luck. Etihad allow passengers to bring on a second, smaller piece of hand luggage in addition to their main item. Here’s what they allow to be taken on for free:
- Handbag, pocket book or purse
- Overcoat, wrap or blanket
- Umbrella or walking stick
- Small camera and / or binoculars
- A reasonable amount of reading matter for the flight
- Infant food for the journey
- Infant carry basket / carry cot
- Braces or prosthetic devices (provided the guest is dependent on them)
- Briefcase or portable PC which is not being used as a container for transportation of articles, regarded as baggage
- Mobile phone
What are the baggage allowances for sports equipment and musical instruments?
If you’re a musical type, and you instrument of choice fits within the cabin baggage dimensions, you may bring it onto the cabin. This goes for violins, small flutes and harmonicas (you get the idea). Alternatively, you can check in larger musical instruments or pieces of sports equipment as part of your checked baggage, or you can cover them by purchasing additional baggage allowance. Any items must be securely packed to sustain the journey.
