How to Measure Luggage

Knowing that the dimensions of our luggage match those accepted by the airline we're taking (list found below) saves us a real heap of stress before check-in, so here's how to do it:

  1. Retract the telescopic handle to a closed position
  2. Begin to measure from the bottom of the wheels and move towards the top most part of the luggage (including the bump of the handle)
