Moreover, the airline reminded air travelers that each of them was allowed one piece carry-on baggage to be placed in the overhead bin or under the passenger seat of the aircraft cabin with a maximum weight of seven kilograms.
“A carry-on bag that exceeds the allowed weight or dimension shall be intercepted and charged an Excess Baggage Charge, if applicable,” PAL said.
In addition to the free carry-on baggage allowance, the airline said a passenger was allowed to carry on-board a maximum of two of any of the following items:
– A small handbag
– Pocket book or purse
– An overcoat, wrap
– A small camera
– Laptop with case

“For persons with disabilities, the above shall be in addition to the assisting devices that are allowed to be carried for free,” the airline added. /jpv
