Tumi® Luggage Size Clarification

Date: November 7, 2017
Type: AFA Article

We’ve begun to receive a number of questions and concerns questioning if the new Tumi luggage items are larger than the standard United luggage policy allows. It is important to know that TUMI has always measured their bags to include all appendages (i.e., handles, wheels, etc.) which tends to add inches to the standard luggage frame. While testing, your MEC Uniform Committee raised these concerns. United and TUMI both tested the rollaboards and approved accessories and confirmed to the Uniform Committee that these items will not only fit down the aisle of all of our aircraft, but also in the overhead bins.  

United’s luggage program team is prepared to answer questions specific to our United luggage program. If you have any questions about the program please send them directly to tumiluggage@united.com.
