Picture this: you are going on a business trip – company is sending you to another city in the state to present their new amazing product to the client, and as usually you only found it out few days before. Now you have to plan for the trip, you need to pack your luggage, find out what best flight to take, what clothes to take, which hotel to book and so on.
All of us have been there, and I am sure many of you have always had a big question on your mind – do you travel light to save up time at the airport and make it easier to commute to the city, or do you pack a full bag to make sure you have absolutely everything you need?
And now to add to your worries three biggest airlines have just reduced allowed size for carry on luggage.American Airlines had cut its carry-on restrictions to a max width of 14 inches, down from the former 15. Apparently, Delta and United have also followed suit.
Sure, an inch might not sound like a big deal. But consider the fact that, for decades, baggage companies have been making carry-on-compatible luggage at the very specific limit of 22 by 15 by 9 inches. A size that is now more or less obsolete.
Other airlines, such as JetBlue and Southwest, allow for a luxurious 24 inches by 16 inches by 10 inches, but who knows for how long, since the three biggest airlines (by a fairly huge margin) are done playing that game. And do not forget that some airlines, including Spirit Air and Frontier Air, charge fees even for carry-ons.
