In trying to find or design the The Ultimate Travel Bag I have stated that it should be “Accepted as carry-on for all airlines worldwide” but what does mean in actual size and weight?
Disclaimer!! The information that I present here is to the best of my knowledge correct, but always double check with your airline before the trip. Furthermore, I don’t cover some really small aircraft due to the fact that they might not allow any carry-on baggage at all.
Note! No individual measurement might be bigger than stated (total length does not apply anymore for many airlines), wheels and handles are included in the measurements.
Maximum allowed size and weight (wheels and handles included): 45 cm x 34 cm x 20 cm, 4 kg
Weight is IMHO the toughest restriction due to the fact that a rugged bag in it self will probably weight >500g.
Data that was the foundation for the above Carry-on restrictions.
- 20 cm x 35 cm x 45 cm
- Japan Airlines (Domestic), Link</li>
- 48 cm x 34 cm x 23 cm
- Virgin Australia (Domestic), Link</li>
- 4 Kg (extreme restriction, more “normal” would be 5 Kg)
- Qantas (domestic), Link</li>
