Keeping Your Carrying Capacity (Airlines Standards)

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful and joyful world if airlines had constant restrictions on the size and weight of their bags? Well, your dreams are now shattered like the mammoth you tried to put in the upper compartment during your last flight. Not all aircraft overhead stores are created equal. Each airline bases its restrictions on the internal configurations of its fleet. Which means, in short, the bag could be carried on one flight, but it must be checked on another.

Fortunately, domestic airlines such as US Airways, Delta, American and United agree on a maximum size of 22 x 14 x 9 inches. Unfortunately, most wheeled luggage pushes these sizes to the breaking point. I had to visit the bag myself because the wheels were just too big to close the top compartment.

Several domestic airlines are more generous with bag restrictions. Alaska Airlines lets you get a whopping 24 x 17 x 10 inches (so passengers can tune their parks on board, we assume). AirTran and Southwest allow for 24 by 16 by 10 inches. If you do not carry bricks, towels are rarely weighed, but there are technical limitations. Be sure your bag does not exceed 40 pounds for large wig airlines and 25 pounds for not very large wig airlines.

If you are abroad, bring a backpack or a light squid belt with you. European airlines have extremely tight dimensions. Weight is also a big factor. Air France and Alitalia limit carry by 21 X 13 X 9 inches with a maximum weight of 26.4 pounds. Carrying bags for Lufthansa, Switzerland and Turkey can be up to 21 X 15 X 9 inches, but these airlines are counterattacking with a maximum weight of 17.6 pounds.

New seats and floating devices often mean less than eight inches of clearance for bags under the seats in front of you, with a maximum width of 14 inches. The average seat in the three seats has even less space under the seat.

Our advice, if you know you will travel abroad or travel by airplanes of various sizes, is to purchase a light smaller carry of approximately 21 X 13 X 9 inches. A bag of this size will fly almost anywhere if you do not stuff it with heavy, difficult items. Remember that overhead bins are not “very” pliable, so be sure to measure your traffic before pulling it out to the gate, just forcing it to be checked.
