Hand baggage allowance

Hi,

I couldnt find anything on BA about this (probably is but its Friday!!)

I'm on a reward flight to CDG tomorrow (Saturday) morning. I've no baggage to check-in but have my 'overnight' bad + laptop bag. As a BA Gold am I allowed to take two peices of hand luggage?

I could transfer all the stuff in my laptop bag to my overnight bag, just dont want to be bothered with it.

Thanks
ML

Hand luggage allowance is the same regardless of status or cabin. 1 piece max 56x45x25 cm (23kg), one piece max 40x30x15cm (slightly different size allowance on smaller piece to/from Brazil). Only the smaller one is guaranteed, but hopefully with priority boarding you wouldn't be selected for gate check.

Are you sure that's not 3 pieces of hold baggage?

That will be checked luggage rather than carry on

I assume on MMB? I think you are getting confused on the information shown, just to show you an example below the top section is for checked bags (in my case 3) and the bottom is for hand bags (1 handbag/laptop bag & 1 additional cabin bag):



There is no such thing on BA as a three bag carry on allowance.
