The Luggage Sizes That Different Airlines Support

Going over the size and weight indicated in the cabin can raise the ticket by 165 euros

With the lifting of many of the restrictions due to covid-19, airlines are once again experiencing an increase in the demand for flights . Some trips that this summer will recover as normal as possible, but before which you have to be careful not to exceed the conditions set . And it is that, for years each airline marks a different size and weight for suitcases in the cabin that should be taken into account.

A plane ticket can be made more expensive by up to 165 euros for carrying a suitcase in the cabin greater than that indicated in the company’s conditions. This is how the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) advises, emphasizing that it is important not to exceed the measurements and check them, as well as the weight, before getting on a plane.

And is that in recent years, many companies have been limiting the presence of suitcases in the cabin to take up less space, as well as have introduced an extra cost for some of them, especially the low-cost ones. For this reason, you must always be cautious and consult all the conditions that the companies stipulate once the ticket is purchased.

The latter is what happens in Wizz Air or Easyjet , while Norweigan, Ryanair or Vueling include free bags only in certain certain rates. In addition, there are other airlines that sometimes, most due to lack of space , decide to send the suitcases to the warehouse, although, yes, without an extra price.

For all of them, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) made recommendations on which the baggage measurements should be based. Therefore, the 56 centimeters high, 36 centimeters wide and 23 centimeters deep are the basic standard but that changes according to the company.
