I have a medium size pack, not a backpack with frame but more a large day pack with laptop sleeve. It weighs about 12-15 kg with laptop, clothes, new pair Reeboks, charger, liquids and electronics. I was able to fit it all in this one bag for a German wings flight last week and since I printed my boarding pass they did not weigh it. But I need to stop at Ryan Desk at Luton next for passport stamp on Boarding Pass so am concerned they will weigh it then and since it is over 10kg charge me a fortune to check it which would destroy my laptop. So I want to prepare in the smartest and most economical way possible. .
They now allow a small second handbag. I wish I had my string backpack with me. There's a video on the web showing the new sizing bins which make me think I could use a shopping bag to put my size 11 reeboks in, stuffed with charger and electronics, then put the liquids bag in my cargo pocket until I get on the flight. This should equalize the weight. What do you think of this idea? If it sounds good when do you think I'd need to do all of this to be sure? Thanks!
