Royal Brunei Airlines reintroduces two-piece hand baggage allowance

Beginning today (January 7), the UK Department for Transport will lift the one-piece hand baggage allowance restriction at London's Heathrow. As a result, Royal Brunei Airlines will re-introduce its two-piece hand baggage allowance for Business Class passengers departing from Heathrow, RBA said in a press release.

All cabin baggage must be of a size that fits either under the seat in front of you or in the aircraft's overhead lockers. The maximum allowed size of a passenger's carry-on luggage is 22 inches x 15 inches x 8 inches, equal to 55cm x 38cm x 20cm.

One piece of carry-on baggage should weigh no more than seven kilogrammes and the combined weight of carry-on luggage for Business Class passengers should not exceed 12kg.

Rules governing the carriage of liquids, aerosols and gels remain unchanged.

In addition, all passengers may also bring personal items, such as a small handbag, purse, small briefcase, laptop or baby-change bag, the press release added.
