4 Must-Haves For Your Carry-On Luggage

At SeatBoost, we travel a lot, and we’ve learned there are some items you don’t want to board the plane without. When it comes to your carry-on, we know you have limited space, and don’t want to lug around a heavy bag all over the airport. Below are some of our most essential items that can easily be added to any carry-on to keep you comfortable on the plane.

  1. Pack headphones to create your own stress-free oasis. We suggest noise-canceling headphones to help block the snorers around you. Regardless, make sure you have a pair handy to watch TV or listen to relaxing music.
  2. Pack an empty water bottle in your carry-on. Key word is empty, otherwise TSA will not let you through security with it. Fill it up in the airport and have the attendant refill your water bottle for you during your flight. It’s important to stay hydrated!
  3. Pack antibacterial wipes to keep your area germ free. There is not enough time between flights for the cleaners to deep clean your plane, so fill a ziplock bag with wipes and keep them in your carry-on. As soon as you take your seat, wipe down your tray table, arm rests, and seat belt buckle. Your neighbor may look at you like you’re crazy, but we bet they’re secretly wishing they had some wipes too.
  4. Pack a long sweater or sweatshirt to keep you warm during the flight. Something oversized is ideal, because you can use it as a blanket or a pillow.

It doesn’t matter if the flight is short or long, the above items are useful for any trip. We hope this helps you plan ahead and stay comfortable on your journey!
