Also, sometimes different airports impose certain restrictions on the carriage of liquid items/bottles in hand baggage therefore one must be aware of these guidelines in advance.

Another important point that passengers need to make a note of is that all medication, fragile items, valuables, perishable items and precious items are allowed in cabin baggage and not in checked baggage.

Precious items include electronic gadgets, cameras, jewelry, currency notes, etc.

One should follow the airline’s guidelines regarding baggage information and adhere to the instructions very diligently.
