Airline Hand Luggage Sizes 2017

Airline Hand Luggage Sizes 2017
7 July 2017 No comments

For the minimalist traveller, knowing and comparing hand luggage allowances can tip the balance of which airline you choose to fly with, so we thought we'd put together a handy table of carry-on luggage limits so you can easily make your decision.

These allowances have been compiled from the airlines information available at the time (July 2017) and can be subject to change. It's always worth double checking the airline's website before departing for the airport to save any nasty shocks at the start of your trip!
