You will have to admit that when you get on the plane, when there are crowds of nervous people in front of you and behind you, it is very easy to get stressed and "lose it".

And when pressed, you don't always manage to manage with the overhead storage compartments above the airplane seats.

The result: you have to find another place to store your hand bag (that is not close to your seat), or worse - discover that there is no space left at all, and in some cases you will be asked to send your bag to the belly of the plane, which means you will have to wait for it for a long time by the conveyor belt at your destination.

And just for these situations, there are some winning tips, shared on her TikTok account by an experienced flight attendant named Kat Kalamani.

According to her, this way the process can be as simple as possible.

In her videos she offers "second life tricks" for travelers and other people who spend their time on flights.

swing overhead (practice at home)

As you know, most airlines allow passengers to bring a full-sized suitcase or trolley with them as well as a hand bag to board the plane with.

This is of course easier on the wallet, because of the expensive charges required for the luggage that is sent to the belly of the plane.

However, since so many travelers are eager to save money, they will "squeeze" all the space available in the plane's storage compartments, fighting with other passengers.

So what does Kat suggest?

Mainly three winning tips.

And yes, she promises that they are second lives...

The Daily Star reports that

the first rule

Her is to take a hand bag with you only if it is not too heavy.

"If you can't lift it, don't bring it," she says.

One of the methods she presents is to swing the bag over her head.

And this is recommended to be done at home, before going to the airport.

If the overhead hoist is not possible - there is no choice but to repack.

"This is important, and it will also save you from embarrassment," she says, noting that there are airlines that explicitly state that "you must be able to lift your hand luggage into the overhead storage compartments yourself."

Look for the instructions

The second tip

requires a little attention.

According to her, in the overhead storage compartments of most airlines, there is a small illustration that demonstrates how to store the bags optimally.

Just like instructions for use.

"It can be horizontal or vertical. Just look at these instructions. It both saves time and makes things much easier."

And speaking of saving space - she mentions that the large bags will be placed first, followed by items of clothing such as jackets, and the small bag - under your seat.

The third tip

What Kat suggests is to simply politely ask the flight attendants for help in picking up your bag, if you are having difficulty doing so.

The idea is not to ask them to do it, but to do it yourself with their assistance.

"Everyone thinks that the flight attendants' job is also to get your bags into these storage compartments, but that's not true. In fact, a lot of airlines tell their flight crew not to do it for fear of injuries - and it happens a lot. We don't even have insurance that covers these kinds of injuries . So don't ask the staff to do it for you, but just ask them to help you."
