What are the safety concerns for cabin baggage?

All cabin baggage must be of a size that fits under the seat in front of each passenger or in one of the overhead lockers. The placement of bags, briefcases, or other items behind passengers' legs is not permitted, and it is essential that cabin baggage does not obstruct aisles or emergency exits, as this is forbidden by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Of equal importance is a limitation on weight, which helps minimise the risk of injury to passengers, should a bag fall from an overhead locker.

For safety reasons, it is Emirates policy, not to carry any baggage on passenger seats. Only musical instruments, diplomatic bags and valuables may be carried in this manner.
