Anyone flown in the last couple of weeks with Thomson to Caribbean? How strict are they being with hand luggage? I am really struggling to get down to 5kg (including putting my handbag in my case). Has anyone's hand luggage been checked or weighed? I am used to flying on American flights where the hand luggage allowance is much more generous!
Thanks,
Tracey

I hhaven t flown recently with Thomson but I think you will find that it depends on who checks your hand luggage as to whether its weighed or not.I always err on the side of caution and make sure I have only got the 5kg limit because I don t want to be embarrased/have to take things out or pay more if my luggage is checked.Some people may say their luggage wasn t checked so you should be ok but I think a lot of the luggage is checked and weighed.As someone on another forum posted 'Put heavy objects in your coat pockets/wear layers etc/heaviest shoes.'

I've decided to leave my caase with wheels at home (it weighs 2.5kg!) and use a backpack instead. Still over the allowance so am taking a very light coat with large pockets and will put heavy things in there!!

I think you will find a ladies handbag is "separate" to hand luggage..at least thats what we have found
It is separate with some airlines and often they will not make you put it in your hand luggage but strictly speaking it has to be able to go into your hand luggage if asked to do so.
