Thanks, but there are lots that fit the other requirements without the half/half opening. This seems to be the most difficult feature to find, which was common 20 years ago.

I totally agree. My cabin baggage is usually around 15kg including a 2kg laptop. Most airlines have reasonable and realistic size limits, and their weight limits should likewise be reasonable and...

The whole point of a non-removable battery (from my point of view) is to ensure that the case must go into the cabin and that it's a big no-no for it to be checked into the hold, for example at the...

In that case, the correct approach is to reduce the size limit, not to impose an unreasonably low weight limit in order to have an indirect effect upon size.

Yes, I'm well aware of that, but I'm focussing on AY because I recently flew with them, and more significantly because AY's size limit is unusually at the top end, i.e. 56x45x25cm, in line with BA...

I'm not sure that's a plausible reason. It would suggest that AY's aircraft have luggage bins that are less robust than BA's or U2's.


Not all, but certainly Ryanair's most extreme drip pricing...

Assuming that a typical case weighs 2kg to 3kg, an 8kg weight limit leaves only 5kg to 6kg of belongings. So a weight limit of 8kg is unreasonably low, given that very people would be able to travel...

Is it really quicker? I've often been tempted to try it. There are two sets of escalators from the Jubilee Line to the ticket hall, but I suppose this route avoids waiting for often-congested lifts...

Why the 8kg limit on cabin baggage and poor AY staff knowledge of size limits?

What is the purpose of AY's 8kg limit on cabin baggage?

AY, together with BA, IB, U2 and several other airlines, allows the largest size of cabin baggage, 56x45x25cm. As far as weight is...

Need 55x40x20cm 2-wheel cabin baggage

I have an expensive Rimowa 56x45x25cm case, which I use on British Airways, EasyJet, Finnair and Iberia, but I need a much cheaper 55x40x20cm case for less frequent use on other airlines,...

The dimensions are odd - not enough in one dimension and too much in another. At 35.8cm wide, it's less than most airlines' 40cm maximum width, so it doesn't maximise potential internal space. And...

No, insurance is for where the errant party cannot be traced or cannot be made to pay. If everyone claims on insurance rather than the errant party funding the cost, then it increases premiums for...

Even if this is an inherent fault of Aeris, British Airways is still liable, because Antler supplied the suitcase on behalf of BA after it damaged a previous Samsonite suitcase in 2014 for which...

Yes, I'm sure I've done this in the past when in Club or First, which is why I mentioned that it's an economy booking this time.
