Airline Carry on Rules

Carry on Camera Case

Check the latest airline carry on rules as of August, 2015. The airlines are reducing the weight and size limits for carry-on bags. So the camera gear you could take last month as carry-on may not qualify this month. There’s nothing worse than having to check camera gear as baggage when you prepared it only for carry-on. Better to be prepared. Here are the new rules for some of the US carriers:

American Airlines (American Eagle may vary. Check website)

One carry-on bag and one personal item.
Carry-on bag total dimensions may not exceed 45.3 inches (length + width + height). Maximum dimensions cannot exceed: 22 length x 14 width x 9 tall.
The bag must fit in the baggage frames located throughout the check-in area at the airport.
One personal item, such as purse, briefcase, laptop bag or a similar item such as a tote. The personal items must be smaller than your carry-on bag and must fit under the seat in front of you.

    So ALL of these airlines suddenly decided to charge more for carryons and change their policies *(AT THE SAME TIME?)

    Price Fixing Much?

    In the United States, price fixing can be prosecuted as a criminal federal offense under section 1 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

    Yet another example of how corporations now run this country and the people are nothing more than pawns in their game.

    I don’t believe carry-on fees were all raised at the same time. All I know is that these are the rules at this moment.
