"Foldable" Umbrellas Now Allowed in Carry-on Bags

About eight years ago when me and my friends were flying from Cebu to Davao, we came across an issue as we pass by the second inspection point in the airport. After my friend’s bag passed through the X-ray machine, an airport officer called her up and confirmed if she’s bringing an umbrella inside the plane cabin. On that day we knew that umbrellas needs to be checked-in. We are not informed of the new policy. In that instance, my friend surrendered her precious umbrella than pay extra baggage for it.

Since then, things have already improved. At some point, checking in your umbrella won’t cost you a dime. And now, the latest as per my experience last month, you can now bring your “foldable” umbrella inside the plane. The prohibition only applies to cane type of umbrella. What I mean are the long “non-foldable” umbrellas.

So the next time you fly and are worried you won’t have an umbrella to use in your destination, this information may comfort you. Things have improved a bit and made sense more and more.




Why are we told not to use cellular phones while flying?

This is another one of those airplane policies most people don’t understand. Do we really have to turn off the phone while flying? Can I just keep it on and just keep on playing music and not call or text? Oh by the way, there are WiFi equipped planes too and they encourage people to buy the service. Is that an exception? Maybe these are some of your questions as a passenger. Well, I would recommend reading this interesting article from The Telegraph, a UK newspaper.
