Samantha Brown Carry On (Wheeld Upright)
I LOVE my Samantha Brown luggage sets. I bought 2 different sets when she had the ombre collection a couple of years ago. I don’t actually fly that often, but I did this past weekend. Apparently Alaska Airlines changed their carry on allowance to a width of 9″, down from 10″. The SB carry on is 10″ wide. Luckily, they didn’t charge me because it was the first day of the new policy. That said, I had watched the SB presentation for her newest luggage set and they kept referring to it meeting most airline standards. Well, that is not the case any more. I looked up other big airlines: United 9″, American 8″, Delta 9″, JetBlue 9″, Southwest 10″. I am really sad that when I fly next, I won’t have my beautiful matchy-matchy, eye catching luggage set. If Samantha Brown brought back the wheeled upright (a.k.a. carry on) for the ombre collection, but in 9″, I’d buy the navy and aqua so I could continue to travel in style.
I’m happy to report that Samantha’s new upright spinner meets the stringent 9″ airline requirements. Thank you Samantha Brown! I got a set of the 21″ (carry on) rose quartz and the turquoise, thinking they will look nice with my ombre 25″ and 28″ in navy and aqua. I’ll still use the ombre carry-on for car travel, but am glad to have these pieces that fit the airline size restrictions. Truly, one of my favorite things about air travel is showing up with my stylish luggage.
