Take United’s Carry-On Policy Seriously
As I wrote in a story last week, United Airlines this month updated their carry-on baggage policy—and their approach to enforcing it. The airline has rolled out new bag-sizers at their check-in counters which all carry-on bags will be required to be able to fit in. This is of course not a new policy in itself; the maximum dimensions are still 9″ x 14″ x 22″ for carry-ons and 9″ x 10″ x 17″ for personal items.
What is news is the fact that United has a “renewed focus on carry-on compliance” according to an internal newsletter, so enforcement is likely to be strict. So if you’re flying United (or really if you’re flying at all), make sure to get out your tape measure and measure your carry-ons before you head for the airport!
