How to Stow Your Baggage in the Cabin

  • Carry-on baggage is restricted to items that you yourself can stow either in the cabin stowage compartments or under the seat in front of you.
  • When stowing your baggage in the shared overhead compartment, please make sure that it will not slip out of the compartment when it is opened.
  • When stowing baggage under the seat in front of you, please make sure that it is pushed back as far as it will go. If your baggage is not stowed properly under the seat, it could slip out in the event of a sudden impact and injure you and other passengers.
  • Leaving baggage in locations where it might hinder an emergency evacuation such as in the aisle or near the emergency exits is prohibited by law.
  • If there is no seat in front of you (e.g., you are sitting in front of a cabin monitor or behind a partition), you cannot place any baggage down by your feet.
  • If you would like to bring a larger piece of baggage on board which is unlikely to fit inside the cabin stowage compartments or under the seat in front of you (e.g., a painting or musical instrument), you will need to purchase a ticket for an additional seat. For further details, please call ANA.
How to Store Carry-on Baggage

Please stow your baggage under the seat in front or in the overhead compartment.

The following situations may occur if baggage is not stowed properly.

Cause Injury

Your baggage may fly out of your hands in the event of a sudden impact, etc., and injure another passenger.

Hinder Emergency Evacuation

Baggage may scatter across the aisles and the areas near the emergency exits, and could thereby hinder an emergency evacuation.

Prevent You from Bracing for Impact

Having baggage on your lap will prevent you from bracing for impact in the event of an emergency.

The overhead compartments have a limited amount of space. We therefore kindly request that you also stow items under the seat in front. You are also welcome to help yourself to an anti-dirt cover, which can be found near the boarding gate, so that you can prevent your items from getting dirty when putting them under the seat in front. If you would like to use a cover, please place it over your baggage before entering the cabin so that you can help us to alleviate congestion on board. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
