HAND BAGGAGE is all the talk at the present time and surprisingly the luggage manufacturers (and their PR people) have been very slow off the mark in promoting their products that meet the new specifications. Most regular travellers (and not regular too) are going to have to have a look at their normal carry-on case and decide if it is legal. Otherwise it”s down to the shops. The cabin bag must be no bigger than 45cm wide x 35cm long x 16cm deep/high (17.7" wide ” 13.7" long ” 6.2" deep/high), including wheels, handles, side pockets ” equivalent to a small laptop bag or rucksack. We”ve heard from the representatives of Fiorelli who are promoting Maisie range featuring a detachable shoulder strap, back and front zip pockets not to mention various interior pockets (45 x 30 x 15). Lambretta (left) has a selection of satchel bags for men that fit comfortably round the shoulder with an adjustable strap and come in muted colours including chocolate, black and khaki (40 x 30 x 10). JanSport provide the 'Paris' bag which features one large main compartment with an organizer under the flap to stash all of your travel goodies and a pocket on the back panel for your mobile phone and mp3 player. Available in brown, plum, grey and blue (38 x 25 x 15).
