Carry On Bag Allowance Guide For 100+ Airlines

Airline carry on allowances change from time to time, new airlines start up and old ones fade away … so it is time for Flying With Fish to update the carry on baggage allowance guide created for 68 airlines back in June 2009.  This updated guide to airline baggage allowance covers more than 100 airlines, and gives further carry on details for certain airlines.

 

As always, if you have questions about an airlines carry on policy … such as if the airline allows a personal item in addition to a carry on bag, or restrictions on carry on baggage exist for certain routes (such as Brussels Airlines flights to Israel or Aeroflot’s flights between Moscow and Cancun); or if an actual bag size specification exists (such as Iran Air’sMedium Bag + briefcase” carry on allowance) … contact your airline directly.

 

If you have any questions, or spot any errors, drop me an email, or find me on Twitter at @flyingwithfish.

 

Happy Flying!
