Flying Etihad? You, Will, Be Allowed To Carry Just One Light, Cabin Baggage

Etihad Airways is well known for its on-board services, cabin crew and seats. Recently the airways have issued a very strict cabin luggage policy. It is the strictest policy in the full-service airline industry in the world. According to this new policy, passengers travelling in Economy class will be allowed only one bag of cabin luggage which should not weigh more than 7kg which is equivalent to a 5-month-old baby. 

Multiple Bags Are Not Allowed

The policy took effect ever from the minute it was announced irrespective of when the passengers have booked their tickets. Passengers now will have to abide by the new rules of cabin luggage or will have to check-in under excess cabin luggage. The cabin luggage must not be more than 7 Kg and the measurement should be 56 cm x 36 cm x 23 cm. The policy also mentions very clearly that no last-minute splurge in the airport’s duty-free will be considered a personal item and allowed separately. The things shopped under duty-free must fit in your 7kg cabin luggage.
