Airline Carry-On Baggage Chart

June 30, 2008 | Posted in:

Don’t end up at the airport with a bag that must be checked for $15 — plus a bag you thought you could carry on, that must now be sent back outside the security lines to be checked — with the result that you end up with two checked bags costing $40 ($15 first, $25 second).

There is no “standard” size for carry-on baggage — each airlne sets its own policy, so we have put web links and size information for most of the popular worldwide airlines in one handy chart.

Measurement is in maximumLinear Inches” which is Length + Width + Height (total inches).
