What You Need to Know About Airline Carry On Sizes

Traveling by air can be a stressful experience, especially when it comes to packing. One of the most important things to consider when packing for a flight is the size of your carry-on luggage. Different airlines have different rules and regulations regarding carry-on sizes, so it’s important to know what you’re allowed to bring on board. Here’s what you need to know about airline carry on sizes.

Size Restrictions

The first thing to consider when packing a carry-on bag is the size restrictions set by the airline. Most airlines will allow bags that are no larger than 22” x 14” x 9”, including handles and wheels. It’s important to measure your bag before you leave for the airport to make sure it meets the size requirements. If your bag is too big, you may be asked to check it at the gate or even leave it behind.

Weight Restrictions

In addition to size restrictions, many airlines also have weight restrictions for carry-on bags. The maximum weight allowed is usually around 40 pounds, but this can vary from airline to airline. It’s important to weigh your bag before you leave for the airport so that you don’t end up having to check it at the gate or leave it behind.

Additional Items

In addition to your carry-on bag, most airlines will allow passengers to bring one additional item such as a purse, laptop bag, or briefcase. These items must also meet the size and weight restrictions set by the airline and should be placed in an overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.

Knowing what you can and cannot bring on board an airplane can help make your travel experience much smoother and less stressful. Make sure you familiarize yourself with each airline’s rules and regulations regarding carry-on sizes before packing for your next flight.
