Default Carry on baggage

Hi all, if anyone has been on a plane recently, how many bags can you bring on a plane? is it one for each person or one all together?

Depends on the airline and where you are going. Just look at your airline's website.

I read on air canada's site about this and it seems to imply that they only let one bag in total for the entire party. I find that hard to believe. Here's the site

What do you mean by the entire party? It's per person. I just flew to Mtl this past weekend with Air Canada. Only brought a carry-on bag and had my purse. On the way back I had my carry-on, purse and a shopping bag containing a little shopping and Montreal bagels!

No one bothered me if I exceeded the limit. It may depend on how full the flight is but I didn't expect a hard time either.

I know I could have checked-in 1 bag (I think up to 50 lbs), but didn't want to have to wait for it since I was only going for a short time.

If I travel with my wife and son on a plane, I understood the info on that site that we can take a total of 2 bags. if its 2 bags per person, then I have nothing to worry about.

It is always per fair paying passenger. Not per party. So if you travel with your wife and son, and you are paying for your son (i.e. he is not under 2 years of age), then all three of you can each bring the number of bags mentioned.

The first line says that even if you are travelling with an infant on your lap you can carry an extra carry-on bag for their belongings. Even if you will need something for the baby, it's not like they're going to check what's inside.

You can sneak in a backpack and hand luggage ( some people use a small suitcase as hand luggage )
