Some time ago someone posted a link showing that photographers can carry on an extra bag. I have lost the link to the FAA page that stated that. Anyone have a clue?

Rick

Here's the link.

It says:
"Photographic Equipment

You may carry one (1) bag of photographic equipment in addition to one (1) carry-on and one (1) personal item through the screening checkpoint. The additional bag must conform to your air carrier's carry-on restrictions for size and weight. Please confirm your air carrier's restrictions prior to arriving at the airport."

Just cause the TSA and FAA allow it, if you read the note, it clearly leaves the final decision on the airline.

Sadly, most airlines don't care, or want to, change their policy and they have the right to disregard the FAA note in favor of their own regulations.

From the TSA page:

Air carriers may or may not allow the additional carry-on item on their aircraft. Please check with your air carrier prior to arriving at the airport.

As for the individual air carriers, at American, it appears to be at the discretion of the ticket agent and gate agents. On our flight from DFW to Toronto this summer, the ticket counter agent told us that they allowed only one carry on, though my wife could carry her over-the-shoulder bag as a purse and it wouldn't be counted as a carry on.

We were flying standby and had exactly 10 seconds to decide if she was going to get on the first available flight and I would follow on the next one. In the confusion, she kept my passport (funny story about Canadian immigration folks, sometime later) and I wound up with both the laptop case and my camera case. "Crap", says me.. "I'm screwed". But then, on the next flight which I DID manage to get a seat aboard, the golden rule of "Look like you know what you're doing" allowed me to board with both hands full of bags. Later, checking with the cabin crew, they said it was just fine to have an additional carryon and a camera bag. So, YMMV.

Glenn's right. I tried printing out the regulation myself before a trip, only to discover that while it will get you past the TSA, it doesn't require the airline to do the same. Of course that was before I went digital, and used to travel with 200 rolls of film in s seperate carry-on. The last time I did that, the TSA insisted on checking (with swabs) each roll of film (which is why I would have it pre-shipped to my location, then Fedex it back to my lab). So stop complaining, if you get two carry-ons, you get one for your camera and one for the personal bag. (Of course now you have to figure out which one to put the laptop in).
