Just thought I’d inform, remind or warn those that do not know or are unaware that most of the flights into Acapulco, even from Mexico City, are on a smaller jet. 2 seats on one side (and not very roomy) and a single seat on the other. One friend even said she was sure if she opened both her arms real wide she could touch both sides of the plane.
AND… they do not allow an extra carry-on to fit overhead. They will take it from you at the entrance door of the plane and check it in underneath and they swear you will get it right back at the door when you exit the plane!!! This is usually untrue.....sometimes by error?? "Ahem" they just pack it with the regular luggage and you will have to pick it up inside at the carousel
Fortunately I have not heard any horror stories about theft or anything missing this year, but be very cautious and be aware that they do force you to put your overhead luggage below.
I suggest you pack your camera, jewels, medicines, laptop/i pads/kindles, that extra money etc. in a small enough bag that fits under the seat or on your lap so there will be no discussion or that you are forced to send it down below.
I carry a big purse with all that in it (and suffer a bit as it is kind of heavy) bit I pull it with a small carry-on suitcase with wheels, meant to go overhead and the one I have is especially meant for the little planes and it does fit! As one time a long time ago I was able to take it on but not anymore!!!
They are adamant about that!!
