Hand luggage restrictions exist for a number of reasons, including ensuring that all passenger baggage fits safely on the plane, and preventing passengers from bringing any items on board which may cause danger to other passengers. Some restrictions have been introduced in response to terrorist threats.
Usual restrictions prohibit you from taking sharp, dangerous or flammable objects, weapons and tools. Most countries, as of December 2010, also prohibit the carrying of liquids and gels in containers of greater than 100ml.
You are free to carry a range of common items in your hand luggage, including books, magazines, electronic devices such as laptops and MP3 players, spare clothing and snacks.
