Carry-On Luggage Size Chart

Carry-On Luggage Size Chart

By Sydnie Boulé


Carry-on luggage is a necessity for every airline traveler. We've discussed the arguments for hard vs soft luggage in the past, and we're certain you're trying to fit all your travel needs into your high-quality polycarbonate luggage right now. If you're checking a bag for your overseas flight, we highly recommend our roomy Globetrotter luggage - but shorter flights and lighter travelers require carry-on savvy.

Before bringing your polycarbonate luggage on a flight, it is important to note that every airline has different size and weight requirements for carry-on luggage.

To save you time, we have created a carry-on luggage size chart that lists the size and weight restrictions of carry-on bags for major airlines.

Our luggage size chart lists some dimensions in traditional height x width x depth (inches) measurements and others in linear measurements, which is more common measuring method for international airlines.

Linear measurement is the sum total of your bag's dimensions, including handles and wheels. For The Jaunt, the linear measurement would be 22" + 14" + 9" = 45 linear inches, making it the perfect choice for your next trip on Air New Zealand. After you've designed your custom polycarbonate luggage from ROAM, check out our International Travel Checklist to make sure your trip goes smoothly.

Here are carry-on luggage regulations for 40-plus other airlines in our convenient luggage size chart.
