Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Carry On Baggage

Hey guys,

have any of you had experience with the budget airlines, air asia? jetstar? tiger airways? they say theres a combined carry on limit of 10kg...which im pretty sure my small roller wont exceed...but they said combined weight. will they give me hassle by adding the weight of my backpack and camera bag?

I've flown cathay numerous times with NO issues, but for some reason, these budget airlines nickel and dime u with check in bag fees so I don't know if theyre gonna hassle me about what I'm carrying on. thanks for any thoughts!

Can't speak for the others, but I've never had my hand luggage weighed on Air Asia.

Just don't look like you've got a bowling ball in your bag. I got stopped and searched by Air Berlin once because I was also carrying a thick jacket and tons of duty free. I noticed everyone getting stopped were carrying too much. They didn't weigh anything but made us wait for bomb residue tests before letting us go. I'm guessing it was to give everyone else with less luggage a chance to fill up the space first.
