Travel kit, hand luggage restrictions.

Has anyone flown with Thomson/Crystal recently? I'm off to Austria soon and am wondering how to carry my stuff, so as to avoid any airport hassles.

I'm taking a belt system to carry two lenses and my two pocket cameras. I intend to wear my EP-1 and my 5D, the latter in a neoprene jacket. I'll also have a slim backpack for my iPad.

Has anyone tried checking in wearing a belt system and carrying a couple of cameras? If they're likely to take umbrage, I'd rather pack the belt at the centre of my hold bag. This is a holiday, not a job!

Re: Travel kit, hand luggage restrictions.

I'ld give the security unit at the airport and the carrier a call - and check that the return airport is not more restrictive. If necessary send a photo of your kit. Interested in the outcome.

Re: Travel kit, hand luggage restrictions.

In theory there is also a weight limit for carry on luggage of about 5kgs. This might vary with different carriers, but kit does soak up any allowance.
