As planes devote more space to seating it should come as no surprise that airlines would soon like passengers to bring smaller carry-on items aboard.  FOX News says,

Global airlines recently announced new guidelines that dictate the “optimal” carry-on size should be 21.5 inches tall by 13.5 inches wide by 7.5 inches deep. The guideline is not binding, but means that many travelers might have to go out and purchase new carry-on luggage, or pay to have their usual carry-on item checked. Details of how the new guideline will be implemented are not clear, and will likely vary from airline to airline. Airlines around the globe already have varying standards when it comes to the acceptable carry-on luggage. The airline trade group says the new guideline will not necessarily replace each airline’s rules on bag size, but gives them a uniform measurement that “will help iron out inconsistencies.”

Man, these airlines are getting over on all of us with all of the changes and charges.  SMH
