As the saying goes, only pack what you can carry, but it rings no truer than now. As of March 2nd, several major airlines have out greater restrictions on the size of their carry-on bags.
While the size restriction is just a smidgen, it hasn’t stopped airlines from ringing and digging travelers with sneaky baggage fees.
How drastic are the luggage size downgrades you ask? It’s one inch…ONE INCH! But it makes all the difference apparently with Delta, American, and United Airlines (rather than the standard 22in x 15in x 9in, the dimensions are now 22in x 14in x 9in).
It’s pretty hard to work around these new restrictions…except to pack light!
