Carry-on Size for SMF-OGG Flight?

Just wondering if anyone has measured the carry-on sizers. Or if anyone has pictures. I have a flight coming up from SMF-OGG and my bag is 22.5x14.5x9 just slightly bigger than the advertised 22x14x9.

Welcome to FlyerTalk!

Unless you are otherwise attracting attention to yourself and carryons, don't worry about it.

Judging by some of the steamer trunks I see going down the aisles, sizers and measuring tapes need not be high on your lists of things to worry about.

If you get it by TSA - you'll get it on the plane. Bin space on Hawaii flights, unlike mainland flights, in my opinion, never have issues regarding running out.....

Just one caveat that I have found with HA over the years. Do NOT bring large carry-ons up to the ticket counter, if you are checking a bag. One time, the agent insisted on weighing it because the "official" limit is 25 pounds. It was funny because my carry-on was only 18 pounds that time.

That one experience left a bad taste in my mouth. After all, I just paid them for one bag and they were trying to extract another bag fee. I didn't fly HA again to Hawaii for secral years because of that poor treatment.

Got it.. Thanks for the tip. I will have other members of my party 'go to the bathroom' with the carry-ons if we have any bags to check in.

This is the best strategy!
