Alaska Airlines is slimming down its carry-on dimensions. As of June 4, the maximum carry-on size will change from 24" x 17" x 10" to 22" x 14" x 9".

The reason? Current carry-on dimensions on Alaska are much larger than what is allowed by other domestic and international airlines.

The change is meant to bring Alaska in line with industry standards, and help connecting passengers avoid size conflicts with other carriers.

As an added bonus, the move to smaller bags will create more space in Alaska's overhead bins. 

This is one of many new changes in the works for Alaska. The airline recently announced plans to introduce basic economy Saver Fares by next fall, along with extra charges for exit row seating, and ditching fee waivers for reservation changes made more than 60 days prior to travel.
