    Which airline are you flying? You'd have to check the rules for carry-on bags for that particular airline. – Zach Lipton Dec 20 '18 at 18:50
  • the "linear" size is unfortunately not relevant – Fattie Dec 20 '18 at 19:50
  • On many (non-US) airlines weight is typically the limiting factor these days – Hilmar Dec 20 '18 at 21:10
  • @Fattie there are quite a few airlines which still use this measure, though often in addition to other limits. – jcaron Dec 20 '18 at 21:57

Carry-on (cabin) luggage is almost always restricted in terms of absolute limits on length, width, and height rather than a single linear size. See for example, for Lufthansa:


Here’s a metric version that compares several airlines:

cabin luggage

If you’re flying business or first class international, sometimes the cabin attendants will let you store longer items in the coat closet. Economy travelers can sometimes get crutches and canes stored there too.

Otherwise, you’ll likely be asked to gate check your bag if it exceeds the cabin luggage dimensional restrictions (or if the cabin is full).

  • Lufthansa these days is also very strict about carry on weight: 8kg max. That makes the dimensions typically moot: a regular carry on of 9x16x22 weighs around 5kg empty so you can't fill it. There is not much point in bringing an a even larger bag – Hilmar Dec 20 '18 at 21:09
