British Airways has responded to an increase in the amount of baggage economy passengers are taking on board by imposing a new limit. The size of the main carry on bag allowed is unchanged at 56x45x25cms, anything else will soon have to be no bigger than the average handbag or laptop at a maximum 40x30x15cms*. Provided it doesn’t exceed those dimensions, it will qualify for a yellow tag that will guarantee it can be carried on boar. If cabin bags exceed the limits travellers will be asked to check them into the hold.
*On flights to Brazil - exceptionally - it's 45x36x20cms.
