Alitalia - Carry on luggage?

Jump to last reply

Yes, I have read everything about Alitalia and am prepared for a less than optimal experience -- but the deed is done and I have tickets to Sicily for May 2016.

We want to make sure we can do carry on only and I wanted recommendations for luggage that fits the requirements. I would especially appreciate hearing from anyone who has flown Alitalia recently traveling with carry on as well.

The dimensions for carry on luggage on the Alitalia website are:
55cm high (21.654")
35cm wide (13.7795")
25cm deep (9.842")
Weight - 8 kg (17.637 lbs).

The website states that the dimensions are from the floor up, including wheels and handle. What I see in luggage reviews, however, is that many of the luggage companies only measure the interior dimensions, so that a bag that appears to be the right size might not meet really meet requirements. From what I've read, they are fairly strict about the weight limit for the carryon piece, but it's not clear to me how rigidly they enforce the size.

I have been trying to find a bag to meet the above dimensions that is under $200, preferably under $150. I like the Travelpro 21 Crew but some reviews indicate that the dimensions are off (includes only the interior dimensions):

Anyone have any experience and/or suggestions for luggage? We want to do carry on only and avoid checking baggage.

Thanks,
Paule
