    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Entirely depends on the actual airline company. Investigate there.

    And the equipment they are flying. And, possibly, the class you are booked for.

    What I learned from selling luggage at an L.L. Bean store: Nominally, 22"x14"x9". Some airlines (Delta) have a max number for L+W+H (can't remember it right now though). People going on African safaris often have a weight limit, due to the small bush planes the tour operators use. Otherwise it just varies. Ask your airline.

    Definitely all of the above.

    Trust me, carry on no more than will fit in the seat in front of you unless you are willing to possibly have to gate check it.

    Or, check the IATA (international air travel association) web site for luggage and carry on regs.

    I also recommend Rick Steves' information on his website.

    No, don't bother. You will not find there regulations for each individual airline company.

    Re: New Overhead Bin Regulations?

    Drew,

    You really need to contact the airline you are flying with for this. You should be able to find the info on the airline's website after you've logged in with your ticket or confirmation number. The specifics depend on what machine you will be in, what class you are flying, etc., etc. I wouldn't trust any hearsay answers you may get here...

    And, you can always stow your case under the seat in front of you if it's not too big.

    Do check though. The last thing you want is to have to check fragile gear that you planned on carrying on at the last minute. Worst case scenario, check what you can in a hard case and only carry the really fragile/expensive things with you. I fly internationally often and only carried my 4x5 field camera, lenses, meter and a box or two of film onto the plane. Everything else, i.e., film holders (empty, of course), filters, and other accessories got packed in my checked bag.

    Best,

    Doremus
