Some baggage is accepted to be carried into the cabin due to other limitations. Such baggage should be stored at the first row of a closed overhead bin, closet or under your seat. If unable to be placed in the above mentioned locations, it might be accepted as cabin baggage and charged for occupying a seat.

- Sculptures/ urns in non-square shapes: These items can be accepted in the cabin but must be stored in a closed overhead bin or closet to avoid moving, falling and blocking an emergency exit.
