    Default Louis Vuitton Luggage/Travel Question

    Ok everyone, here's a question.

    I haven't used my LV Pegase 60 yet on an airplane (just traveling in the car), so do you think I should check it or try and carry it on? I'm going to Cancun on May 10th. It's size is 0.5" smaller than the total allotted size, which is 45" (L+W+H). However, it's 0.5" bigger in length and width than the box they use to measure all carry ons.

    So my dilemma is this:
    Should I try and make it fit as a carry on and see what happens, or should I just check it? My worry is that someone will see it in baggage claim and say "Hey, I'll take that," and my luggage and everything in it will be gone.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    how are you flying? usually the higher the class that you fly the more likely that they are they will accept it. i borrowed a keepall 60 once from my cousin when i flew first class and it was fine because the attendents put it in a specific area. i asked what would happen if i rode business or coach and they said they would have to check it beause it was a tad too big.


    so call the airlines and ask ahead.

    I'm flying coach because my boyfriends parent's bought all of our tickets (about 6 of us), so no special treatment with the luggage

    I wouldn't check in any LV luggage. I would be too scared and paranoid.

    i wouldn't check it. i've had my bags lost twice...ugh frustrating.
    I have brought on carryon bags that have been a TAD too big sometimes and not once has anyone said anything to me about it. Just don't make it obvious, don't ask them if it's the right size, just play stupid the entire time. If you are REALLY worried about it - don't take it at all.

    As long as it fits in the overhead compartment, you should be good. IF you make it through security with it, and it doesnt fit, they will take it planeside and give you a ticket and when you land it will be brought out to you right then and an actual person will hand it to you.

    I wouldn't check it, though...those bags are too expensive.

    I'm really nervous about my LV's so if I can't take it with me I will leave it home. Maybe you should play like you had no idea it was too big like SusieQ said.

    I think Susie and Brandie have a good suggestion. I'll just pretend that I didn't know it was too side. Although, it's smaller than the allotted 45" total (I think mine comes out to be 44 or 44.5") So hopefully they will just take it. I was also thinking since it was LV maybe they would put it up in first class for me anyway :)

    I doubt they will make an exception for LV and put it in first class if you didn't pay the fare. They even make you pay for snacks now.

    Hahaha true NashvilleDiva...there are no exceptions on airlines anymore. On my flight to China, it was booked by my company and not me. They forgot to request a vegetarian meal so I had to STARVE for like 11 hours until I finally said something and they YELLED AT ME for not requesting it beforehand (how was I to know??). Finally they threw me a plate of lettuce and a slice of lemon (i swear...really). I gobbled that down and then another flight attendant saw what happened and ran to 1st class to steal me some chocolates, fruit and nuts. He was really sweet. Bless that man.
