Carry on El Al

Any suggestions for 20inch carry on and can you also take a handbag with carry on to Israel?

According to the rules you can NOT take a handbag in addition--unless you have matmid status ( assuming you are flying Economy or Economy plus) El Al has been getting stricter and stricter re: their carry on policy. They aRE putting bags in the cage to verify the size and they are looking for people who are attempting to bring more than allowed. There is a whole crew who watches passengers as they walk down the jet way prior to boarding!

Don't forget that the size of the carryon INCLUDES the handle and the wheels. They want the bags to fit sideways in the overhead compartment so that TWO bags can fit in each compartment.
