- laptop with bag

- small camera or a pair of binoculars

- coat or overcoat
You must keep in mind, however, that all carry-on luggage must fit in the overhead cabin or beneath the seat in front of you. In any travel, it is advisable to hand carry as light and little as possible so that you will not have trouble going around from the lounge to the plane and vice versa. Also, your hand carry should be light as you will have to lift and fit it in the over head storage. In case if it is heavy, or you are finding it difficult to handle it all by yourself (due to an infant, poor health etc), then you may ask the airline staff for assistance.
