In-Europe and Transatlantic Baggage Limit Question

Jump to last reply

I am flying BOS-LHR-HEL in a couple of weeks. The trip is all on BA. The transatlantic leg is world traveller + class, but the european leg is eurotraveller or whatever they call coach/economy. I am hoping to avoid checking a bag (it's an unbelievably short trip and I'm sure LHR will be no picnic to negotiate).

Can anyone tell me how strict they're likely to be about carry-ons at these three airports? I had hoped to take a briefcase (or large purse) and small wheeled suitcase, but am not sure that this will pass muster. Having once had to frantically repack bags at the Lufthansa counter in Boston, I'd really like to pack properly this time...

Thanks!

p.s. If anyone has suggestions for a pleasant afternoon/evening in Helsinki, I'd love to hear them!
