Airline carry-on guide

We frequently get asked:

What are the maximum dimensions and weight you can take as hand baggage on airlines?

With all the current security measures now in place, each airline has its own size and weight allowance for carry-on, although usually only one bag is allowed as carry-on.

So, we have compiled a list of the current* Airline carry-on allowance for some frequently used airlines departing from the UK:

Airline Hand Baggage Allowance

*carry-on allowance at 8th July 2010, as stated on the Airline websites
