Let’s be honest, finding the right carry-on to bring on your trip can get stressful. Many of us have surely encountered a scenario where last minute before our trip we debate whether our carry-on luggage might be too big to bring on board, but we still decide to bring it. We get to the airport and stand on the check in line fearing our carry-on luggage might be too big and hoping the airline staff will go easy on us and let us bring it on board regardless. But, for safety purposes and for your peace of mind, you should refer to the official carry-on allowance policies before your flight’s departure.

Every airline has their own rules and trying to search for the information on maximum size/weight of carry on allowance can get time consuming. At Briggs & Riley, we like our trips to be as stress-free as possible, so we want to make it easy for you! We put together a list of size and weight allowance of each airline you can refer to when packing your hard shell or soft shell suitcase for your next trip.

Please note that airline carry-on allowance policies and guidelines are subject to momentary changes and based on Economy standards. For the most up-to-date information, please check your airline’s website prior to departure.

    Frequently asked questions


    1. Can a 24 inch luggage be a carry on?

    Unfortunately no, the standard carry-on size is typically 22” x 14” x 9”, so a 24 inch bag is too large to bring on board of most economy standard airlines.

    2. Is there a size limit for carry on bags?

    Yes, every airline has their own unique rules when it comes to carry-on luggage. Please refer to our carry-on baggage size allowance chart or your airline's website to find the right information prior to departure.


    3. Is a 22 inch carry on too big?

    No, a 22 inch carry-on bag is not too big, since it’s a standard size for most airlines. But we always advise to double check the size allowance before your trip to be safe.


    4. Are you allowed a backpack and a carry on?

    Yes, you’re allowed to bring a travel backpack as it counts as a personal item. However, make sure that’s it’s smaller in size/weight compared to your carry on. In addition, make sure that your airline allows a personal item as most airlines have their own rules.
