Don’t Miss These Carry-on Luggage Policy Changes on Alaska Airlines

Airline policy changes…….who can keep track of them all? And carry-on luggage restrictions are mind-boggling, to say the least. There are no standards and each airline sets their own rules. And sometimes these rules change. I was reminded of this today when this email popped into my inbox.  Alaska Airlines has changed the size requirements for their carry-on bags.

I created this master chart of all the airline carry-on bag policies so I could keep track of changes like this. Check out what Alaska has to say about their reasoning and also about how to “tame” your carry-on bag!

And if you’re interested in getting  the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Credit Card which saves you the fee on your first checked bag, I’d appreciate it if you use my referral link. I have the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Credit Card and the first checked bag free option saves me money I’d rather spend on coffee!

    Doesn’t make much sense to buy a battery-powered GPS suitcase (w/ GPS tracking ability), if the airlines make you take the battery out prior to shipping. The 9″ carry-on requirement is tough… almost all carry-on suitcases are deeper than 9″ !!
    I paid to check an 11″ bag on Spirit…Then found out that it would’ve easily fit in the overhead bin.

      I hear your frustration, Lindy. Unfortunately when it comes to checked baggage and requirements and fees, I think we’re all confused and frustrated. Thanks for reading and leaving your comment.

    Quit flying on these airlines for a month. Everyone put a msg on their FB and web pages stating your intentions, and anger over the nusance carry on change. Then FOLLOW THRU!!. WHINING WITHOUT EXERCISING YOUR CONSUMER POWER IS A USELESS WASTE OF ENERGY!
