“All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go,” sang John Denver in his classic tune “Leaving On A Jetplane.”
When you are preparing for a flight, packing your things can really take a huge amount of your time. Aside from making sure that you won’t leave behind important items, you also have to keep in mind the guidelines set by your chosen aircraft carrier.
If you are boarding a Philippine Air Lines, here are some reminders you should observe to avoid potential hassles along the way.
When bringing liquid, make sure that you put them in an airtight plastic bag or a ziplock. Cabin pressure changes can cause leaks even if the bottle or container has been sealed well. Also, take note that liquids, aerosols and gels in 100ml containers are only allowed as carry-on luggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Valuables and Fragile Objects
Never put fragile objects, valuables (such as cash, jewelry, and electronic devices) into your checked baggage. You should instead bring them with you in your carry-on bag. Sharp Items, on the other hand, should be in the luggage.
Any type of lighters is not allowed on the plane – or even in the airport – so don’t even bother.
Meat and Poultry Products
