if you have flown recently, you know how expensive it can be to check your luggage and many people choose to carry on a bag but buyer beware. here is nydia han with the details. >> this one is a flyer beware, carrying on your bag avoids fees and saves you time, but consumer reports tells us that some bags are not as small as manufacturing claim. >> people often want to use a carry-on so they don't have to pay to check a bag and it saves you time. every inch counts, the maximum dimensions is 14 inches by 22 inches by 9 inches, but not all
bags truly measure up, this one calls itself a carry-on and so does this one and this one. consumer reports put 11 bags to the test and measured each one several times with laser precision, 9 of the 11 were bigger than they claimed including sampsonite. >> some don't count wheels and handles, but the expectation is that when you buy a carry-on bag it will fit in the overhead bin. >> like this one from tumi, it's still several inches to large to be carried on and they suggest measuring it yourself before buying it and pack with care, particularly outside pockets,
because overstuffed could be oversized and if it doesn't fit you'll have to check it. and check with your airlines, and remember that spirit and frontier air charge fees even for carry-ons. >> that will do it for "action news" at 4:00, for sharrie williams, alicia vitarelli, able adam joseph, sharrie williams, i'm brian taff. we hope you'll join us for a full hour of "action news" at 10:00 on phl 17.
