FIRST OF ALL, purses shouldn’t count. I mean, maybe one of those bizarre Gucci-Prada-whatever purses that look like giant shiny diaper bags qualifies as a single carry-on item. But a small bag with a phone, documents, and some cash? No.
I flew to Belize in March and New York in April. Both times, I took a backpack, laptop, purse, and camera bag with extra lens, all as two carry-ons. It probably wouldn’t have worked without the complimentary messenger bag I received from ETHNOTEK.
