Cabin luggage: Guide to hand baggage sizes and weight restrictions

Here's all the info you need on cabin luggage dimensions and weight allowances on major European airlines for short-haul http://www.skyscanner.net/flights-to/e/cheap-flights-to-europe.html">flights to Europe with major airlines including BA, Ryanair, Easyjet and Lufthansa.

According to our recent survey*, 82% of UK air passengers want all airlines to have the same cabin bag allowance. But the size and weight restrictions on hand luggage often varies between airlines, despite attempts to standardise cabin bag requirements by the International Air Transportation Association (IATA). That's not to mention the question of whether your handbag or laptop case counts as extra! So, how big is too big?
