Chuck out that spanking new Luis Vuitton (okay fake) bag you got for your holiday – it’s now probably way too big.
The size of hand luggage is expected to shrink from 56cm by 45cm by 25cm (ish) to a minuscule 55cm by 35cm by 20cm.
On the plus side, this will hopefully eliminate the variety of different size allowances on different airlines.
At the moment Easyjet and British Airways allow 56cm by 45cm by 25cm while Virgin Atlantic only allow 56cm by 36cm by 23cm.
Ryanair meanwhile only allows 55cm by 40cm by 20cm.
