Airline Carry-on Luggage Size Restrictions and Luggage Backpack Recommendation

Whether you are flying abroad or domestically, you cannot exceed a certain size restriction for your carry-on luggage. Before you print your boarding pass, it’s necessary to learn the size restrictions – to avoid being forced to gate check when your carry-on luggage didn’t fit snugly in the dreaded measurement box. Although travel rules vary depending on the airline you choose, most airlines have their own restrictions on the size of carry-on luggage.

 

To get started, let's begin with these frequently asked questions.

 

What are the size restrictions of carry-on luggage?

By far, the biggest benefit of traveling with carry-on luggage is being able to transport your belongings yourself, without entrusting them to the airline and hoping they'll arrive at your destination in one, undamaged piece. 

 

To be sure your luggage is accepted on all carriers, you’d better get a gear that stands at 21’’ or less. This size limit ensures your bag will be able to be stored safely in the overhead bin for your flight.

 

What is the weight limit for carry-on luggage?

For most US domestic airlines like Delta, Southwest, JetBlue, there are no weight restrictions for carry-on bags. You only have to be able to lift it above your head into the storage bin. And in most cases, even if airlines do list a specific weight limit on their websites, they probably won't weigh your carry-on bags.

 

While most US domestic airlines do not have weight limits, the rest of the world does. Cabin luggage usually has a weight restriction from 5 kg to 12 kg, with most airlines in Asia and Australia limiting it to 7 kg.

 

What is a personal item?

In addition to your carry-on suitcase, many airlines also allow a personal item.

 

A personal item must fit under the seat in front of you. Small handbags and backpacks or laptop backpacks usually make the cut. Some airlines allow diaper bags, cameras, and duty-free merchandise – or items purchased within the airport–in addition to a carry-on and personal item.

 

In those cases, the general rule of thumb is an item smaller in dimension and weight than your carry-on bag. For families flying with uncommon additions like a wedding dress or an instrument can rest assured that most carriers will let you bring these along with your carry-on luggage and your personal item, we recommend you contact the airline in advance to confirm this.

 

While many things are allowed in your carry-on and personal item, most countries restrict the size of containers for liquids, gels, aerosols and pastes – even in partially empty containers during security. Pack ahead of time and place larger liquid items in your checked luggage.

  1. Limit liquids, gels, aerosols and pastes items to a maximum of 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters
  2. Place all items in one single quart-size, zip-top bag of clear plastic
  3. At security, remove your quart-size bag and place it in a bin

 

We have found detailed carry-on luggage size restrictions of different airlines. Let’s take a look at the size restrictions on the airline of your origin and destination.
