One bag carry on rule

UA staff at check-in, but that can be avoided by using the machines or not showing the bags.

BAA security. That seems to be difficult to enforce since the security at T1 covers other flights. Pos
UAL in PEK at check-in now insists that each passenger may only have one carry-on including personal items such as laptops. If the laptop fits into the carry-on no problem. Not clear what would happen if one ignores the advice. There is a thorough check at the gate to weed out any liquids and some passengers are diverted for additional pat downs now. It's possible they are watching for second carry-ons at the gate also.
