Emirates Air Carry On via Lusaka

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow travelers, I will be traveling Emirates Air, economy, from Lusaka (LUN) - Dubai (DXB) - Rome (FCO), where I will begin a 3 month trip around Europe. My carry on is a hiking backpack that weighs about 15Ibs (probably more like 16Ibs) with only my essentials (ie clothes, toiletries, etc). I also have a messenger bag which is carrying my laptop and camera (+lenses) and weighs about 10Ibs. I would prefer not to check my bag as I have traveled in India before and heard many horror stories of bags that have vanished and I cannot afford to buy all new clothing when I arrive in Italy. Based on my research some Emirate locations are very strick and some are lenient, but I haven't found anything specific to my itinerary. Has anyone boarded Emirates from Lusaka that might have some advice for me? Will they likely weigh my messenger bag?
