I've just measured our 2 suitcases and the dimensions, on each, add up to an inch or so more than they should.
Mine was brand new this year, I even checked the label that said it was the correct size before I bought it.
I'm so annoyed.
To be honest, I think ours are the same but we've used them 3 or 4 times a year without any problem at all! I think they go off weight much more than size unless they're grotesquely large!
Diane, I'm not sure if the luggage manufacturers include the wheels and handles when measuring the cases. The airlines do.
Wish everybody would get on the same page with this!
I agree, Taja, especially since it's the traveler, not the luggage manufacturer, who'll have to pay the over-limit fees if the measurements aren't accurate...sheesh!Originally Posted by Taja, post: 159231
Mine are slightly over too and have used them several times. I actually spoke to someone in special assistance a few years ago, just afterI had bought some ones as I was worried. She told me to take them back and get a refund and just to worry about the weight. A few inches over the three dimensions would not be recognisable.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 159115

I'm going by the weight of our sitcases not by size Diane.
