What’s in My Carry On Bag for A Long Haul Flight

At the end of the week, I will be travelling with my family on a long-haul flight to Italy.  I’m sure by now you’re almost sick of hearing about it. 🙂 It’s not only a long “overnight” flight to Italy, but we also have to make it through the first leg to Dallas. TX for our connecting flight.

The bag I will be using as my personal item is this Anti-Theft Signature Tote from Travelon.

Usually I travel with a suitcase and a backpack for a carry on.  However, for luggage on this trip, we will be taking backpacks, so I will need something else to use as my underseat personal item.  For this reason, I decided on a tote with a long cross body strap to use as my secondary item.

I will need to have some certain items on-hand to try and make both flights more comfortable. Here’s a picture of some of the items that will be in my carry-on.

The complete list of items includes:

  1. Travel Pillow
  2. Eye Mask and Ear Plugs
  3. Passports
  4. Wallet
  5. Phone
  6. Paperwork Folder
  7. iPad
  8. Kindle or Book
  9. Travel Emergency Bag {video}
  10. Noise Cancelling Headphones
  11. Gum and Snacks (going in my husband’s carry on)
  12. Camera Equipment
  13. Prescription Medication
  14. Cords and Chargers for All Our Devices

These are the items that I take with me in order to feel comfortable on a plane. What are your go-to items for in-flight comfort?
