12 Things to Always Have in Your Carry-On Bag

By The Hub team, May 13, 2018

As anyone who’s ever been stranded in Denver for 17 hours knows, airline travel often throws a curve ball. But if you’ve got a well-packed carry-on, you’re good to go no matter what happens. Here, 12 things to always have on hand.


Element 1

1. Eye Mask
Whether you’re trying to sleep on a red-eye or in a hotel room where the sunlight pokes in at 5 a.m, an eye mask will help you get the shut-eye you need to feel your best.

2. Antibacterial Wipes
From the airport to the shuttle bus, you’re going to be touching lots of germs. Decrease the ick factor with a pack of Wet Ones.


Element 2

3. Layers
Planes can never decide on a temperature. (Hello arctic takeoff and hot-flash-central landing.) Do yourself a favor and pack some options so you can stay comfy throughout flight.

4. Advil
Getting a migraine three hours into your trans-Atlantic is no fun. Always travel with pain-relievers so you can nip it in the bud. 


Element 3

5. Photocopies of your passport
Losing a passport abroad is a complete nightmare, so make sure you have a few photocopies in case of emergency. Keep one in your wallet, one in the pocket of your favorite handbag and heck, even one in your toiletry case.

6. Toothbrush
Feel a little grimy upon landing? Freshen your breath and get on with your life.


Element 4

7. Extra Cash
Because who knows when you’ll see another ATM. 

8. Slippers
Is it just us, or is it impossible to get comfortable on a plane when your toes are all jammed into your sneakers?


Element 5

9. Refillable Water Bottle
Of course, water won’t be allowed through security, but you can fill up at the nearest water-fountain, then stay hydrated throughout the flight. (These amazing Kleen Kanteen bottles keep water ice-cold for an entire day.)


Element 6

10. A Notebook
You don’t have to be a travel blogger to keep a written record of your trip. Pack a journal and pen or pencil so you can jot down thoughts, memories or goals as they come to you.

11. Snacks
Because you are not fun when you’re hangry.

United, Honeywell Invest in New Clean Tech Venture from Alder Fuels, Powering Biggest Sustainable Fuel Agreement in Aviation History

United agrees to purchase 1.5 billion gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) over 20 years - which is one and a half times the size of the rest of the world's airlines' publicly announced SAF commitments combined
By United Newsroom, September 09, 2021

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
