Alaska Airlines changes carry on luggage policy


Recommended Posts

From today Seattle Times newspaper


Passengers traveling with Alaska Airlines should make the most of the carrier’s generous carry-on luggage size. Throw in that extra Scandinavian crime novel while you can, because soon travelers will have to edit their packing list and might even need to purchase new luggage.

Starting June 4, the airline will reduce the carry-on size limit to 22-by-14-by-9 inches – a 2-by-3-by-1-inch trim. The new measurements conform with those set by other major airlines, including American, Delta and United. Virgin America, which will cease in name on April 24 and become part of the Alaska Airlines family, will also require the smaller dimensions

Interesting. Right after the FAA debated the whole "shrinkme" issue and discarded it as self-serving and damaging to luggage manufacturers and passengers. Meanwhile, other airlines are changing the way aircraft are built to accomodate luggage better without inconveniencing passengers.
