What is a Carry-on Bag?

A carry- on bag is the type of luggage travelers are allowed to take into an airplane. On the other hand, checked baggage is transported in the cargo area of the plane.

Airplanes are designed with luggage compartment spaces to store carry-on luggage. The storage space is situated in overhead lockers or under seating.

Depending on which airline or country you fly from, carry-on bags are also labeled as hand baggage or cabin luggage.

What is a Checked Bag?

On the other hand, checked baggage is transported in the cargo area of the plane.

Checked baggage is inaccessible to the passenger during the flight or ride, as opposed to carry-on baggage.
