Carry On Luggage Size Rules

 

The main thing you need to know regarding carry on luggage is that all airlines have different policies when it comes to carry-on luggage sizes and weights. Not all airlines are the same.

So in hopes to simplify the rules, and help you determine what luggage sizes are allowed, I have compiled a list of the major airline’s rules and regulations regarding carry-on baggage weight and size allowances.

I will continue to add more airlines as the information becomes available.
