It appears this carry on is no ordinary one, but comes with a particular piece of equipment. Now, I’d have been guessing all day before I got is, so I’ll just reveal all to the left. It’s an iron. I can understand an iron being useful, and as we know they’re a staple in most decent hotels and motels, but I can’t see how KLM could justify this as something to do – especially as the electric plug would be usable in only some locations!
A more conventional KLM carry on bag is seen below, also bearing the traditional ‘royal’ logo with the crown, this time, though the ‘KLM’ cipher reversed out in orange.
