Airline Carry-on Bag Dimensions

AIRLINE CARRY-ON BAG DIMENSIONSAirline carry-on bag dimensions can vary from carrier to carrier. However, unlike checked baggage which varies depending the destination, the carry-on baggage dimensions are usually the same for both domestic and international flights. 

There are a few exceptions. 

  • Class – First, Business & Economy classes can have different carry-on bag dimensions.
  • Smaller Aircraft – Airlines running services with smaller aircraft can have limited carry-on options.
  • Partners – Flying with several different carriers in one journey can include different baggage policies.

Below we have compiled a table of 53 of the finest airlines in the sky today, and the hand luggage size for each company.
