Group Wants To Make Carry-On Bags ... Smaller?
A trade association representing hundreds of airlines says more than 30 have expressed interest in adopting a smaller carry-on size standard.By Jamal Andress | June 10, 2015
For all of you who have argued with an airline employee over the size of your carry-on bag, I have some news.
"Passenger will know if he/she buys this bag they'll be able to take it on board a growing number of airlines," IATA Vice President Tom Windmuller said.
The problem is that bag is smaller than most U.S. airlines' maximum-size bags. American, Southwest, United and JetBlue all currently allow carry-on bags that are bigger than the new standard the International Air Transport Association is considering.
