href="http://www.atgstores.com/business-laptop-bags_2698.html?linkLoc=topnav" target="_blank">Carry Bag</a>)</li> </ul> <strong>General items you can bring aboard that are not counted as a personal item <em>or</em> carry-on bag:</strong> <ul> <li>A jacket or umbrella</li> <li>Food or drink purchased after clearing the security checkpoint</li> <li>Duty-free merchandise</li> <li>Special items like
