Here's all the info you need on carry-on luggage sizes and weight allowances on major American and European airlines for international long-haul flights and short-haul flights in Europe with 45 major air carriers including British Airways, Emirates, American Airlines, United, Ryanair, easyJet and Lufthansa.

According to a recent skyscanner survey, 82% of UK air travelers want all airlines to have the same cabin bag allowance.

That's not to mention the question of whether your handbag or laptop case counts as extra! So, how big is too big?
