2014 Regulations Overview

Long been one of the most Carry-On Friendly and accommodating Airlines of the past, in 2014 United has made it UnitedLuggagetop priority to enforce their Carry-On Restrictions Stricter than ever. This does not mean that you will not be getting the same friendly, happy, and helpful service from the good folks at United, it simply means that when your bag is 1.5 Inches over the size limit, they will most certainly make you go check the overstuffed bag for a $25.00 fee. Still wanting to give their flyers a chance to maximize their packing space, save money, while also adapting with the modern travel landscape of today, United gives you the option of having 1 Carry-On AND 1 Small Personal Item on most flights offered. The maximum size allowed on the carry-on is 22″ x 14″ x 9″ and the Small Personal Item needs to be able to fit underneath the seat in front of you, (generally maxing out at 17″ x 10″ x 9″ as seen on the right). Let us show off some of the best Carry-On’s and Personal Bags that fit these strict standards for all different kinds of modern travelers depending on what your particular passion may be.
