Thats exactly what happens.....
Check in the 5kg of hand luggage if they are strict enough to check it (personally never happened to us )
And then , I have done this myself......
buy perfume, alcohol, smellies etc from the duty free, and then add on the mags and three bottles of water from WHSmith
no one ever checks how much i have bought.....mags books and water weigh heavy!!!!!

......so they take umpteen pieces of hand luggage then.....
They do for now. It is usually in the small print that the airlines can refuse to allow passengers to board with more than one piece of hand luggage, so far I've not heard of an airline actually doing so. How long will it be though before one of them decides to try charging passengers for extra hand luggage? As soon as one does it the rest will follow.

I agree Deedee, anything to make an extra £ or two from us.....
We have in the past been asked to fit our Boots meal deal bag AND our bottle of champers from the shop, inside our hand luggage (only one piece was allowed at the time)....then took it straight back out again as soon as we boarded the plane lol!
Funny old world.....
