Most airlines such as Emirates allow their passengers to keep an additional handbag along with them on board. If you keep your amenity bag with you on the flight, you can reduce the weight of your checked baggage.
- Keep a Hardcase Bag that is Light and Fits as Carry-on Bag
Try to buy a high-quality hard case bag that is normally made up of ABS plastic and is durable as well as lightweight. These bags can help you save some space and keep your stuff under the weight limit.
