Luggage on airplanes - weight and dimensions

As is well known, the luggage have also ears. Airlines are able to pull them off if they do not meet their requirements. What are they?

Each airline has its own standard on the luggage. After all the search for the information and its verification, many travelers long to pack it in. That would be a pity of course. That’s why we’ve prepared an overview table for you to find out what to pack according to the airlines and destination.

At the airport we divide the baggage into two basic types, regardless of the number of wheels, handles and zips. You can take a cabin or a carry-on luggage with you on board. The check-in luggage travels separately in the luggage compartment. The special category is The Luggage by Terry Pratchett, which is subject to the same transport conditions as pets.
