- What are the maximum dimensions for hand baggage?
The hand baggage has to fit into the overhead lockers in the cabin or under the passenger's chair. For technical reasons the dimensions are limited and vary according to the aircraft type and the airline.
In case of doubt the dimensions are checked at check-in by fitting it into a basket which has the exact maximum dimensions. If your hand baggage does not fit into that, it will not be allowed into the cabin. At that moment you can still check it in as hold baggage for which other maximum dimensions apply.
