Strange luggage size and 5 kg limit - Carry on impossible?
Hi, I booked a flight with Thomas Cook (UK) thought I would try out my new Tristar. Going to a hot country - easy. However... not only is the carry-on 5 kg, but the luggage size limit is 43 x 28 x 23 cms - sorry they dont do inches.
I thought this could be a challenge, me/Tristar like challenges, but checking the sizes means that most bags -Tristar included are too large usually on the width.
Good news is they increased the checked limit to 20kg, I would rather they increased the 5kg limit and made the sizes more in line with other airline guidelines.
Is this the only airline with absurdly low weight AND bag sizes?.
I thought the idea was to encourage carry on and discourage checked luggage.
Any others out there?
