Cabin Luggage Size Allowance by Airline

In an ideal world all airlines would use the same dimensions and restrictions for carry-on cabin cases.  Alas, that’s not the case and in a world of budget travel you can find yourself getting charged additional fees if your case is too large or too heavy.

Below we've listed the main airlines flying out of the UK along with the current allowance.  Please check with your airline before travelling to ensure the dimensions listed below have not been changed.  Please note that some airlines charge a fee to bring your cabin case on board.
