What you can take in the cabin
In flights with a very high occupancy rate, or in some aircraft, it may be necessary to put your hand baggage in the hold (free of charge), even if you comply with the established size limits. In these situations, your baggage will be requested at the boarding gate and delivered at your destination, at the arrivals baggage carousel.
You can choose to check your cabin bag at the check-in area, free of charge, so that you can travel with greater peace of mind.
