Traveler scrutiny is an understandable issue these days, making passenger check-in and boarding, already a less-than-fun experience, even more tedious. One way to make it better is to ensure baggage compliance before you arrive. Limit carry-ons to one personal item, such as a handbag, or laptop, and one luggage piece, nothing exceeding forty-five inches, end to end, or weighing over forty pounds. 3.4 ounces is the allowable size for liquids, and these should be easy to enclose in a ziplock bag, quart-size.. It almost goes without saying, but, obviously, refrain from packing sharp objects, or potentially flammable liquids.
- Heightened security measures have mandated a crackdown on every piece of carry-on luggage.
- Virtually every commercial airline in the world allows each airline passenger to take one piece of carry-on luggage and one personal item.
- The international size limit for carry-on luggage is 45 linear inches.
“The international size limit for carry-on luggage is 45 linear inches. This is the total of the length plus the width plus the height of the bag.”
