don't know if anyone has already posted about this but this was my experience a couple of weeks ago: - couldn't find anything on it I checked in with BA and when I was about to go to the duty free/gate zone I was told that we could take only ONE bag - I had only my handbag and my laptop but no matter, it had to be just one! now the annoying thing is that I had a spare bag in my checked in luggage..... so I ended up buying another bag to put the other two in... I asked at the BA counter and they gave me such a ridiculously tiny plastic bag and the guy had the cheek to tell me that they come up BIG???? also, it annoyed me that they didn't tell you at the check in but this has been the case since last summer so... I just came all spoiled from continential Europe hahahaa so be advised to have only one bag for hand luggage!!!!
