Air Berlin Hand Baggage

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I had been researching information regarding Air Berlin's hand baggage/carry on. I was seeking what fliers on AB were saying and how accurate the weight/size limitations really were. I wanted to take a minute to post my findings. I just flew from Chicago to Munich (Via Berlin)

My checked bag to Munich was no problem either way. It was less than the 23KG there, and it was over coming home, but I knew that. I bought a lot of local candies, chocolates etc and was prepared to pay the extra 100 Euros for the overweight one way fee from Munich back to Chicago.

What was interesting was the strictness of the hand baggage policy. Much more strict that flying domestically here within the US. My bag was about 1" over on one measurement (H) but less than on W and L. I was fine with the size. They did however in Germany pick up my hand luggage in Berlin (to Munich) and in Munich to Berlin to see if it was weighing more than the 8kg limit. It was coming back to the US today. I had to move a few small things into my purse. Wasn't a big deal, but I figured if anyone is curious about this same topic. Perhaps you're planning on traveling in the EU using only hand baggage or something along those lines. Keep your weight and size of your hand luggage in line with AB policies. Just my 2 cents. Hope others flying with AB can find this helpful!
