US Airlines reduce baggage size limits

ABC News, Jun 15

There's nothing quite as annoying as getting to the airport only to be told by some officious airline representative that your carry-on bag is bigger than their allowed size.

And that's something that could be happening more often soon, as a number of big US-based airlines reduce their size limits for carry-on bags.

American Airlines, United and Delta have all reduced the maximum width of bags to 14 inches from 15 inches (that's to 35.5cm from 38cm for us Europeans) - so their passengers' bags now need to fit within 22 inches long, 14 inches wide and 9 inches high.

Not all US-based airlines have followed suit - but with these big 3 airlines changing their limits - the new policy could prove a headache for a lot of passengers.

Especially for long-haul passengers heading for Europe - where space for lots of items is a premium. If gay men can't get all 24 pairs of their Andrew Christian swimsuits into their carry on - look out for some heated scenes at check-in desks across America.
