Your are right that is why it is important to contact the carrier and go by their regulations. I do not like checking baggage. I lived in Hawaii many years ago when the only gateway city was Honolulu. to go to an outer island you had to transfer to an interstate company. We lived on Kauai and was visiting on Honolulu. We checked out bag for the 20 minute flight home. Our bag got lost. and went to Singapore and back. It was delivered to us 48 hours later.Please note that the “litre” size is NOT a good measure of what an airline will allow. My wife’s size-small 50L Osprey is actually smaller than my size-large 40L REI pack. It’s best to go by actual HxWxL measurements and stay under 10kg
We had 36 litre Osprey backpacks and were allowed to carry them on with us on the airplane. We did check ahead of time at the airport to make sure though. We didn’t want any unpleasant surprises at our actual departure.What is a good carry-on friendly backpack to take, as in how large can u go in regards of backpack dimensions, on your average international flight?
Good advice from Vacajoe.Please note that the “litre” size is NOT a good measure of what an airline will allow. My wife’s size-small 50L Osprey is actually smaller than my size-large 40L REI pack. It’s best to go by actual HxWxL measurements and stay under 10kg
Good practical advice.The most import measurement appears to be the backpack's length.
In watching security staff doing the checking, this always appears to the initial check.
55cm is a maximum length that seems to satisfy all airlines I have ever flown with.
If your pack appears a little bulky, wear an extra shirt, put on your fleece and/or rainjacket, put socks or whatever in your pockets.
Carry something folded over your arm.
Once onboard declothe and reload your backpack.
Occasionally I have felt like the MIchelin man, but it's not for long and solves the problem.
Kia orahow large can u go in regards of backpack dimensions, on your average international flight?
