The Allowed Carry-On Size May Soon Shrink
The International Air Transport Association, a trade association, unveiled a new size guideline on Tuesday for carry-on bags on airplanes that would be significantly smaller than the bags allowed on many U.S. airlines.
A number of international airlines have already adopted the new guidelines, which are non-binding. Here & Now‘s Robin Young takes a look at the new sizes with CNN business reporter Maggie Lake.
The new suggested carry-on size is 21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches, compared to a current average of 22 x 14 x 9 inches.
