Jetstar 2 bags 7kg carry on include handbag??
Yeah, I took jetstar last week - on the flight back they weighed our handcarry togther with handbag/ backpack. We overshot by a few kgs, but the TWMM let us off with a reminder. Luckily we were the first few that checked in early

I recalled last year that i already got checked in 20kg, but in the end only checked in 15kg.

Then I carry a cabin size around 5 plus kg then ask me put my handbag on to weigh together.

The moment I showed them the handbag they almost fainted and tell me no need to weigh tgt. My Handbag is small until put 1 wallet and 2 hp with 1 passport full alr.



but the way they do quite OMG. Even I carry a big handbag also should not count ma....

I carried backpack which seems light also will weigh on Scoot.
So please be careful with your luggage weight limit.
Kena fine is no fun.

Fren always check n get free luggage upgrade.

Midtown richardson pricin seems good for a 4 stars however i read some review that the lifts there are chaotic...need to wait for 5 to 10min to jus board the lifts
Its too packed liao the hotel
Hotel breakfast is like going war to fight for ur food

I am lookin at this via hotel ximen family room, i have 3 adults and 2 kids
Right in the middle of ximending, 24hrs free snacks and drinks in the lobby lounge but its located in a small alley and its more like a boutique hotel

Sent from Samsung SM-G935F using GAGT
I stayed at midtown in last Nov. Waiting for the lift is a pain. After 10 min still waiting coz is always full. End up take the stairs down.

The breakfast crowd quite ok. Plenty of empty tables ard. I went at abt 7+-8 am

Mid richardson is near by less than 10 mins walk.
But like many has said, the waiting time for the lift during peak period can be quite an issue for some.

Think Westgate hotel also around there.
Lobby looks classy for Westgate but the rooms surely is small.
Mid-richardson is bigger.
If you want, can try justsleep. But rather pricey.

Apparently, and strangely...
Many/Some do not check on google map and rely on asking.
