British Airways slashes the size of hand luggage
Saturday, August 1, 2015

Thousands of British Airways passengers face tighter restrictions on their hand luggage after too many were found to be exceeding their allowance.


The firm permits two pieces of baggage to be taken into the cabin, but is nearly halving the size of the ‘personal’ bag.

From August 18, passengers will be limited to just 40x30x15cm – compared with the current maximum of 45x36x20cm.


It could lead to many travellers – who have already bought special bags to fit their laptops – having to buy new luggage or even replace their portable computers. However the size of the main piece of hand luggage – which is often a wheel-on bag – will remain the same at 56x45x25cm.


BA said that the changes are being made to speed up boarding. The new limit on the personal bag will mean it can be stowed under the seat, and cabin crew will not waste time rearranging over-stuffed bags.


If there is still too much luggage in the over-head lockers, passengers may have to decide which of their bags should go in the hold.
