I am going away soon and I have hand luggage only for the flight (some may know it as cabin luggage) because I am only away for the weekend.
I bought some slightly bigger bags than guaranteed-to-fit size bags so I could maximise the amount of stuff i can take but my issue is the dimensions of the this bag are right on the cusp of the maximum allowed size for the airline I'll be flying with (easy jet).
How can I make sure that the bag will fit into their bag checking box thing they have at the airport?
I've tried measuring it will a measuring tape but with the handles being in the middle at the top of the bag it is hard to be sure that it really fits.
Just for people's information the maximum size for the airline is 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (height x width x depth respectively).
It would also be nice to maybe hear people's personal experience in how lenient airlines have been with their hand luggage allowance!
