Anadolujet international flight carry-on baggage allowance: personal item

Anadolujet allows one piece of 23x40x55 cm and 8 kg as carry-on baggage. Do they also accept an additional 'personal item' such as a laptop or male handbag? For me their baggage rules do not specifiy very clearly if this 'personal item' is allowed in addition to the carry-on baggage or not. Also it is not mentioned what would be the maximum dimension/weights for the 'personal item'. And, do they check the carry-on luggage very exactly (like other low cost airlines) or is more like Turkish Airlines like? Any additional info/experience would be highly appreciated. Please also note that Anadolujet might makes a difference between domestic and international flights.

The carry-on allowance and the rules are the same among Turkish Airlines and AnadoluJet.

Thank you much ISTFlyer ! So, in addition to the carry-on baggage a personal item will be allowed (40x30x15 cm, no weight restriction indicated!).

But to be honest, even TK somehow is a bit inconsistent with the information concerning cabin baggage. On https://www.turkishairlines.com/en-i...ge-calculator/ on top they write: 'One piece of cabin baggage per passenger not to exceed 55x40x23 in size and 8 kg in weight and one
personal item as bag per passenger not to exceed 40x30x15 in size can be taken on board in the Economy Class.' But if I calculate the cabin baggage allowance (e.g. IST-ZRH) it then says '1 CABIN BAGGAGE 55x40x23 cm (Width x Length x Height) Maximum 8 kg + 1 ACCESSORY (No larger than camera, telephone etc.)'. For me, a 'personal item' not exceeding 40x30x15 seems to be quite a bit larger than an 'accessory' 'no larger than a telephone'. But my experience says that the personal item definition works, so I hope it will be the same with Anadolujet.

Just think as 1 item 55x40x23cm & 8 kg that could fit into the overhead bins and one personal item that could fit under the seat in front of you.

I don't want to open a new thread because of my question:

Is it correct that Elite Miles and Smiles members are allowed to have an additional piece of check-in luggage for free with Anadolujet on international flights?

There is no pieced based baggage concept on AnadoluJet. It's weight based. However, Elite's do get +20kgs extra baggage allowance.
