When traveling by plane on your vacation or business trip, one of the most important pieces of luggage that you will pack is your carry-on bag. This will be your only available supplies before and during your flight, so it’s important to make sure you pack all the essentials to make your flight most comfortable. It’s always good to have a checklist, especially when it comes from someone who flies for a living.
Flight attendants are on hundreds, maybe thousands of flights and they know how to pack… so we asked them!
Before we get into the items you can take with you, ALL of the flight attendants did give one piece of advice – BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE! You never know what can happen from emergencies, lost luggage and injuries on your trip. You want to make sure you’re covered and it’s not a huge extra expense.
Here are the top items flight attendants recommend bringing on the plane with you.
1.) Passport Holder
Traveling can be stressful. The last thing you want is to lose your passport and ticket! That is why a passport holder would be beneficial for you to invest in. It will be able to protect your passport from normal wear and tear from frequent travel. It will also add extra organization by keeping your passport, money, and ticket all in one area.
Flight attendants recommend passport holders because you can easily identify a brightly colored holder rather than a dark blue cover in a dark bag.
