Carry-on size chart: All major airlines hand baggage measurements

So you want to travel with just your carry-on luggage eh? Well, we can help. The issue is that airlines around the world all use different standards for determining their carry-on size restrictions. This means that there really isn’t on standardized carry-on luggage size. A domestic airline in the US will often have very different dimensions and weight limitations than a budget carrier in Europe. That’s why we created this handy list. We took days and days to gather up all of the carry-on hand baggage restriction numbers for you.

If you’re interested in our picks for the best carry-on luggage on the market, check out our Buyer’s Guide: Best carry-on luggage. You’ll find both US domestic and international carry-on sizes in there. Check the sizes on the chart below and that will tell you whether you need the slightly smaller international carry-on size.

  1. Great resource. I believe that you could make it even better if you normalized the measurements in both directions, giving both centimeters and inches for all airlines. And, since I am guessing that you just relayed the information in the units each airline prefers, indicate which units they provide the information in.
