Carry-on luggage on SAS

We're flying from the U.S. to Oslo in May via Scandinavian Airlines, and I noticed on the SAS web site that they have a one carry-on per passenger limit. Does anyone know if this means a purse counts as a carry-on? For example, can I have a small piece of luggage (meeting their 8 kg limit) and a purse, or is that not allowed? How strict are they? Thanks!

If their web site says one carry-on per passenger, that is what it is. You need to get everything in this one baggage. I don't know about SAS but Ryanair is very strict on this, you are not allowed to have a purse or a small handbag in addtion to your baggage

SAS is not a low-cost airline like RyanAir. To my experience they are not very strict, rules about luggage are enforced only when necessary.

I am sure it will be accepted to have a purse in addition to your carry-on,

as long as it is a purse and not a bag.

If I'm traveling with a purse or other extra item, I always make sure that I could stuff the purse into the carry on bag in case someone insists.

At some airports (Heathrow, and I'm sure there could be others) they may not let you through security unless you can get everything into one bag. You can take it out again once you're through.
