How to calculate the size of the luggage

- Nov 30, 2017-

Luggage is basically quadrilateral, we often hear people asking how much size we want when we are buying a luggage, 20 inch, 24 inch, or larger or smaller. In fact, normally we do not care much about the size of the luggage, as long as it’s enough to put our things. However, once you have to go abroad, you must take into account the size of the luggage for boarding, because each airline has its own restrictions on weight, number of pieces, as well as size of the luggage. In fact, it’s not appropriate to say size, why? Look at the following.


Common luggage size:

18 " luggage size: 34cm * 44cm * 20cm

20" luggage size: 34cm * 50cm * 20cm

22 " luggage size: 36cm * 52cm * 26cm

24" luggage size: 48cm * 70cm * 30cm


Airline’s size limitation is usually calculated by the sum of the length, width and height, more limited to 115cm, so when you go abroad as long as the added value of length, width and height doesn’t not exceed the limitation of that Airline, you can choose the luggage size according to your own needs. The general suggestion is 20 inch or below, for example, the sum of 34cm * 44cm * 20cm is 34 + 44 + 20 = 98cm which is smaller than 115cm, then it will not be restricted.
