im going to visit my mates in holland, next month and reading through the airport rules is confusing/worrying me me. can anyone help?

1. is hand luggage the same as cabin luggage or is cabin luggage the bag/suitcase that contains your clothes and things?

2. are the times on the tickets UK time or dutch time?

3. can nintendo DSes be taken on a plane?

4. has anyone been on a fokker, if so what is it like?

1. Hand luggage is the stuff you take on board with you, I think they sometimes do call it cabin luggage, as opposed to hold luggage (with your clothes)

2. Take off and return landing times are UK. Landing and return flight times will be Dutch time.

3. Not sure.

4. No.

I suggest you go on the website of the airline you are flying with (not the ticket agent, the actual people you are flying with, eg KLM). You should be able to look up many of these things, or perhaps if you can't find the answers there, why not ring them and ask? I'm thinking about your Nintendo question especially.

Enjoy your flight/trip.

Hope I'm not confusing matters here Lucy: Cabin luggage can be the 1 bag (it has to fit into the container presented to you at check-in) you take on board with you. If you are on a short trip, with not many clothes etc. this small bag would certainly save you time waiting for luggage-reclaim on arrival in Holland.

cheers, hopefully i won't have a nervy b on flight day.

Which company are you flying with Luce? Presumably you have already found out which type of plane you will be flying with (hence the Fokker question).

Airlines have to tell you which type of plane you will fly on if you ask them.

This info is useful as you can then look at a seat plan (normally on their site) and plan which seat(s) you want.

im flying with klm royal dutch airways, i was asking cause i have very long legs and budget airplanes usualy don't have lots of leg room

Here are their seating plans, then.

You have to scroll down for the Fokkers (if you excuse the expression, lol).

i was slightly over the designated hand luggage weight last time i flew and they didn't care. it's only if it's REALLY OVER that they are bothered.

Long legs Lucy? Fly first class LOL! I know what you mean. I have short legs and it is still a stretch.

#3: Yes, you can take your DS on the plane. There is just a certain amount of time when you cannot play it, they'll tell you when, and then you can turn it back on!
