A Guide to Airline 'Carry-On' Cabin Baggage Sizes
As a general rule to absolutely determine whether your bag will be suitable for 'carry-on' cabin baggage size you should consult your airline before travelling.
However the general parametersfor cabin baggage are set internationally by the 'International Air Transport Association (IATA)' to which most major international airlines adhere (within a few centimeters).
The IATA guidline is...
"Carry-on baggage must be stowed in the aircraft cabin which limits baggage to a size, weight and shape to fit under a passenger seat or in a storage compartment.
Cabin baggage therefore should be a maximum size of:
Length: 22 in (56 cm)
Width: 18 in (45 cm)
Depth: 10 in (25 cm)
These dimensions include wheels, handles, side pockets, etc. Carry-on items must remain with the passenger at all times and are the responsibility of the passenger."
Please remember that a number of the European Low Cost airlines now charge for 'checked-in' baggage and their size requirements for cabin baggage often differ. This makes the size of potential 'carry-on' bag more important if you are travelling on a tight budget or are limited on time and don't want to wait for the carousel to collect your 'checked-in' bags at your destination.
So again it is important to check with your airline before travelling.
We have provided links on all products throughout the Leather Briefcase Shop website to this page so that you can quickly determine whether the bag you are interested will be suitable for 'carry-on' into the cabin or whether it will need to be checked into the hold.
We at Leather Briefcase Shop would be grateful to receive any comments about requirements you have noticed that greatly differ from above (or any points of interest when travelling or using one of our leather bags) - if you have time please email us at: email@example.com
Many of the products supplied by the Leather Briefcase Shop are available for personalisation (those marked with a tick followed by the words 'Personalised Embossing Available on This Product'), making for an extra special touch to a quality bag.

The position, style and method used for your embossed message, name or initials is usually left to the discression of the craftsmen, but is commonly positioned neatly in a corner, on the outside of the product. Embossing is often done in capital letters, in either a 'Script', 'Times New Roman' or 'Arial' font and sometimes the choice of this font is dependent on the product available for embossing. Embossing is discreet but discernible.
