Airlines for America, a trade group for U.S. carriers, has rejected proposed international standards for carry-on bags.
Last week, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced an initiative to "optimize" airlines' accommodation of carry-on bags by suggesting a new standard luggage size. Most standard carry-ons are larger than IATA's recommendations, meaning travelers would have to purchase new luggage if the smaller size was adopted. However, the suggestion was smaller than many current size allowances — IATA's maximum size is 21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches, compared to the common 22 x 14 x 9 inches now in practice.
Backlash from travelers who are no doubt already weary from strict baggage requirements and airline fees was swift. But travelers (and comedians) weren't the only ones concerned by smaller standards.
Airlines for America president and CEO Nicholas E. Calio said Wednesday the bag initiative was “unnecessary."
