When buying carry-on luggage there is one key thing to remember - airlines are strict!
There is no official international carry-on size for suitcases!
The dimensions for carry-on luggage are the bag’s height X width X depth(all measured in cm or inches). With the cases's capacity measured in litres (L)
You need to check with the airline on what they allow – with some being meaner than others!
In Europe, airlines like Ryanair are on the meaner side with dimensions at 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. While Easyjet and many national flag carriers are not so much more flexible at 56 x 45 x 25cm. But these dimensions are sometimes changed by the airlines, so you should check their website out.
