Travel Products - Rimowa Salsa 22 not allowed as a carry on?
Dec 5, 10, 3:18 am
I recently purchase a Rimowa Salsa 22. I just realize salsa measurements are 22" x 17.7" x 9.8 which is above 45 linear inches ( 22 x 14 x 9 ) in most US airlines..
I am interested to know if any Rimowa salsa owners had their carry on rejected both domestic and international flights.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Rimowa makes international carry on and domestic carry on versions/sizes. You have the larger international size. The domestic size is 21.7 x 15.7 x 7.7 and can be carried on most airlines. Hope this helps.

The international (IATA) 2 wheeler is marginally smaller than the domestic 4 wheeler?

Then I find it more advisable to go with the smaller 20" sizes for hard shell cases.
If you don't mind that it gets checked, then you can go with a larger size.
What I typically do is I use a 22" bag for domestic travel in the USA.
But back when I was doing international esp. in the EU, I would use a smaller carry-on roller.

Thanks for the info. I return the international version and got a domestic one. Go for the domestic one if you are planning to travel in the states and international. It is smaller and will fit on most flights.
For those who travel extensively around Europe, go for 20 inch carry on; however Rimowa doesn't make 20'inch.

I think it's the other way around. The international version has "IATA" in the name, as in "IATA Cabin Trolley", and has dimensions of 21.7" H x 15.7" L x 7.7" D.
You refer to 'domestic' as US. Rimowa is not US, however, and does not make any US-specific models.
It looks like what you have is the Cabin Multi-Wheel, and that is larger than the IATA version. I'm pretty sure you can use this larger version on most US flights, as US carriers don't usually enforce their own rules. Some luggage manufacturers have international and US versions of carry-ons. The US versions are usually larger.
You would have probably fine with the larger version.
