Cabin Baggage Checks

Adherence to the cabin baggage allowance facilitates security checks at the airport as well as minimises the likelihood of injuries caused by luggage falling from overhead compartments due to excess stowage. It will also help ensure the aircraft cabin remains clutter-free, for easier movement by fellow passengers and the crew.
