If you have flown airlines recently, you may have experienced difficulty in finding room to store your carry-on bag in the overhead bin directly above your seat. You find a spot two rows behind you - then you spend the entire flight worrying that someone will take your bag by mistake upon landing.
Lower fuel prices has allowed airlines to lower fares on many flights. They have however, offset those lower fares by increaseing fees for checked baggage. More and more people are flying these days and are trying to save money by packing as much as they can in their carry-on bags. Unfortunately when they arrive at the airport they are finding the airlines are strictly enforcing new weight and size restrictions for carry-ons. Passengers who thought they were getting a great deal on air fare are now shelling out another $35 - $40 for last minute checked baggage because their carry-on no longer qualifies as a carry-on.
Our Free "Guide To Airline Carry-Ons" is designed to help passengers avoid these problems and added charges. Unfortunately there is not one set airline industry size and weight standard for carry-ons.
You can find all this information on each airline's website.
