BAGGAGE allowances limit the amount of things passengers can take onboard a plane, so it's important to know the right essentials.

Experienced travellers like flight attendants know how to get the most out of their luggage, but they also know which essentials should be prioritised.


One member of cabin crew has explained which items she sees as the most important for a flight.

The flight attendant shared her list via TikTok in a video that has since been viewed over 4,000 times.

One of the items is a moisturisers.

The flight attendant also brings on board a personalised first aid kit that includes plasters, bandages and other medicines.

In order to remain confident during her shift she also packs a toothbrush, toothpaste, mints and a comb.

Because the flight attendant showed liquids of varying sizes, someone had a question in the comments.

The person wrote: "Is there a size restriction on liquids for cabin crew?"

Helpfully, the expert replied: "Depends on the destination. For the most part, there’s no liquid restriction."
