A flight attendant has revealed his cheeky trick to sneak more clothes into your carry-on luggage without being charged for extra baggage.
Miguel Muñoz has been a flight attendant for more than a decade and said to ask staff at the airport’s duty-free stores for an empty bag to put extra items in.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Miguel said many passengers don’t know that duty-free bags aren’t counted in carry-on luggage allowances.
A flight attendant who has more than ten years experience in the ski has shared his genius ‘duty-free hack’ to sneak extra items in your carry-on luggage
‘If you have something that doesn’t fit in your suitcase or you want to bring an extra bag on board, here’s the trick,’ he said.
‘All you have to do is carry a duty-free bag or ask for one at the duty-free shop and you place whatever you want in the shopping bag.’
Miguel said travellers who discover their checked bag is too heavy can simply remove some of the items and place them in a duty-free bag rather than paying the airline for the extra weight.
