Please note that
- Hand luggage must fit under a passenger seat when stowed, in order to prevent it from sliding sideways into the aisle.
- Hand luggage must not obstruct passenger movement to, from or across the aisle.
- Hand luggage stowed in overhead compartments must fit securely, so that flight attendants can close the compartments without using force.
- There is little or no chance of hand luggage or other articles falling out of overhead compartments when the compartment doors are opened.
- Do not keep hand luggage on your lap.
- The aircraft's closet is not suitable for stowing passenger luggage.
- At some airports, hand luggage size may be more limited due to the aircraft's storage capacity (especially A321s) even if your hand luggage size complies with the limited size according to the image above. If the luggage cannot fit into the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you, it will be stored as checked baggage and placed in the cargo compartment. We appreciate your understanding and co-operation.
- We'd like to remind all passengers, your hand luggage must comply with the hand luggage dimensions and weight limits and must be stored properly by you. If you carry oversize or overweight luggage, you may be required to pay additional charges for it to be transported as checked baggage. We appreciate your understanding and co-operation.

The above items should be safely stowed in a closed overhead compartment or under the seat. If you put your free personal item in the seat pocket, it should be within the vertical line from the seat back and under no circumstances can it protrude into the aisle.

Some special items are not suitable as check-in luggage due to their nature and you must request permission to carry them in the cabin. Such luggage should be stored in the closed overhead compartments or under the seat. If it cannot be placed in the locations mentioned, it will be treated as cabin luggage and you will be charged for an extra seat, including:
- One infant's carrying basket, fully collapsible stroller, pushchair, car seat or CARES harness. A small fully collapsible stroller can be stored in the overhead compartment if there is space available. A large stroller can only be accepted as checked baggage. Before the stroller is checked, please remove the stroller accessories to avoid losing them.
- An infant's necessity items such as diapers, feeding bottles and food for consumption during the flight cannot exceed 5kg when carried on board.
- Walking sticks/wheelchairs/crutches/braces/prosthetic devices/any assistive devices needed by disabled passengers.
- Medicine/medical equipment or supplies, including transplanted organs. For blood transportation, it is necessary to provide a non-infectious certificate from a related clinical laboratory in advance.
- Sculptures/urns in non-square shapes: These items can be accepted in the cabin for placing under the seat in front of the passenger or in a closed overhead compartment to avoid moving, falling or blocking an emergency exit. However, if you do not want to store such items under the seat in front of you or in the closed overhead compartment, they can only be accepted as cabin luggage and you will need to pack them into secure and strong boxes.
- Musical instruments: No cabin luggage can be higher than the seatback, except musical instruments. However, musical instruments cannot block the aisle or obstruct other passengers' view of the emergency signs. Only passengers in aisle seats behind a partition are allowed to store cabin luggage on seats. A cello, accepted as cabin luggage and stored on the passenger deck, cannot block the walkway to an emergency exit; for example, window seats behind a partition are not recommended. Nevertheless, a cello can be accepted in the row in front of the partition only on the condition that passengers have free access to an emergency exit.
- Bulky luggage: Items that cannot be stored in the closed overhead compartments or under the seats and accepted as cabin luggage.
- Valuable items: Cash, financial documents, jewellery, cameras, cell phones, portable electronic devices and other valuables should be kept on your person or in your carry-on bags. You can store such items in a closed overhead compartment or under the seat.
