This is what the website lists for carry on baggage. I have traveled with some large carry on bags over the listed limit and I have not had any problems. If you board in zone 1 or 2 you should not have any problems getting overhead storage space.

If you mean the laptop bag plus ONE larger hand luggage, you're fine, as long as the laptop bag fits under the seat in front of you. If you mean one hand luggage, one purse/backpack/briefcase/other floor luggage, PLUS one laptop, then you will need to consolidate or check something. They've seemed quite strict with the one-plus-one bag rule lately and I'd not expect to scoot by unnoticed. That said, my laptop often goes inside my bigger rollaboard so I can take it and a purse.

Why would you knowingly travel with a carry on bag larger than the listed limits?? Especially knowing how limited carry on space gets... To me thats being selfish. Also, more and more you are going to find that larger bags wont get by the gate agents.

Have you thought the impact of this approach on those you board in zone 5 or 6?

I've heard FAs say the "other bag must fit under the seat in front of you" rule, but I don't think I've ever seen it on the website or the CoC anywhere. Is there somewhere where they define the size of an allowable "laptop bag?"
