Does hand luggage and personal laptop should be within the checked 25 Kg luggage in Air Asia?
No. The checked luggage is only the luggage that you hand over to the airline when you check in for your flight. Hand luggage is usually limited to around 8 kg or 10 kg depending on the airline. As long as your hand luggage doesn't look excessively heavy then the airline staff will probably not even weigh it. However, if your hand luggage is oversized or your checked luggage is overweight or oversize then they might want to check the weight of your hand luggage.
Air asia allow free hand luggage of 7kg.
Luggage and hand luggage is two different entity. Luggage is depends on whatever you had pay while hand luggage is free for 7kg.
Yes you can take hand luggage. I always take my laptop bag filled with camera and lenses as well as all kinds of junk. It's a standard size laptop backpack so they never weigh it because it doesn't look out of the ordinary.
You do realise the air asia website has this all explained in easy terms to understand.Edited: 08 June 2018, 21:58
