Some of your personal items and equipment may be taken on board as hand luggage. But certain things must be stored in the hold when you fly in and out of the United Kingdom.
BAGGAGE RESTRICTIONS FOR PERSONAL ITEMS
A comprehensive list of prohibited items and what airlines will allow to be taken on the plane.
You should contact your airline before you book if you want to travel with a large musical instrument.
In some cases you may need to make special arrangements.
This could mean paying for an extra seat and all musical instruments will be screened separately at the check-in gate.
Standard pushchairs, wheelchairs, and walking are usually allowed inside the airplane cabin but they need to be security screened first.
