Always follow the rule of the airlines for the description given for the luggage bags as if not followed travellers might be charged extra.
Usually, airlines allow one carry-on bag (measurements of the bags are mentioned on the website depending on the specific flight) and another personal item such as a purse, briefcase, or laptop bag.

In metro-cities, airports have various forms of ground transportation, like a train or a shuttle, through which you can reach the correct set of gates for your flight and they also pay keen attention to not only the gate but also the concourse.
Travellers can think of various activities they can involve in at the airport when they are aware about how much time they have for boarding.

Airports have a huge waiting area and there are seats in front of your gate where you can sit and wait for your flight to take off. Airports also have tables with outlets to charge your electronics wherein you can charge your phone or other electronic items if required.
But however, travellers should be careful of whatever activity they are involved in while waiting for their flight to take off as the most important thing for them is not to miss the flight for which they are at the airport and set the alarm for a few minutes prior to the actual boarding time.
The most important tip here is that before your flight's scheduled boarding time, go to the bathroom and fill up your empty water bottle.
Although different airlines have different set of boarding rules, but however, when aspirants from New Era Education are travelling for MBBS in abroad or MBBS in Russia, they are accompanied by representatives who take care of the aspirants throughout the journey.
Once you enter the plane and reach your seat, you are required to place your carry-on bag under the seat in front of you or in the overhead compartment if it fits. It is always a good idea to take the items you may need such as a jacket, travel pillow, blanket, headphones and a tablet out of the bag before you keep in the overhead compartment.
In short you need to keep all the items with you in the seat pocket or under the seat in front of you which you might require during the long journey before proceeding to put on the seat belt.
Travellers, please make a note of the following things to keep in mind during the duration of your flight:
Do not forget to check whether you have put all your belongings in your bag again after your flig.ht has landed and arrived at the gate. Also, it is advisable to never keep important documents in the seatback pocket as it is easy to be out of the mind while you are on your long international flight and once you exit out of the plane you will not be allowed to enter the plane again.
Follow the signs for baggage claim or the exit after leaving the plane. Moreover, before leaving the airport you must go through border control if you are flying internationally. Moving ahead, you should look for a corresponding baggage claim carousel to your flight, if you have a checked bag, which should be on an electronic screen near baggage claim.
