The clever £5 item people use to fit more in their hand luggage – and you probably already have it | The Sun

IF you are looking for a way to take more on holiday without paying for luggage, there is a sneaky way to do it – and it's flight attendant approved.

Miguel Muñoz has been a flight attendant in the UK for more than a decade.

He told the Express how a laptop bag lets you take more onto flights – and doesn't get checked.

He said: "The laptop case never gets weighed and you can always place some of your belongings there.

"I've done this many times. Simply wrap some of your clothes around the laptop or place other heavier stuff into the computer bag."

"This is not only a great way to carry more but also very useful to avoid baggage fees for overweight luggage."
