Chances of using my backpack as carry-on?
So I am planning to move to Europe from Canada this fall. I really want to take my traveling backpack with me but am hoping I can use it as carry-on instead of having to check it or put it in a suitcase.
My bag is 55l +10l, I don't plan to put very much in it aside from my laptop and maybe something fragile like my makeup.
According to a website, it measures 9.5 x 12 x 30in. I have searched a couple airlines and the measurements they give are roughly 9 x 16 x 20 in for baggage allowance. What are the chances I can put my bag through and they won't measure it? I usually only have a small bag and a purse as carry-on and have never been questioned before.
Thanks in advance!
Air Canada is fairly easy going on carry-on weight but they're getting stricter about carry-on dimensions. Wesjet is almost as bad and the charters are worse.
Good luck, but be prepared to check it.
Lots of last minute panic throwing stuff into their checked luggage...
The maximum carry-on dimensions that bags like the Mei Voyageur and Tom Bihn Aeronaut embody are already what I'd consider pretty damn big (44-45 liters). So that extra 10 inches of length and 4 inches of width are going to be very noticeable.
I'd say by all means risk it, but make arrangements for checking it just in case.
