    Edit: just checked and the BB is listed at 355mm and I had it at 360 (a hold over from the first version where sizes were stored in cm not mm). Delta's cm measurements are 56 x 35 x 23 cm, so it's a "no fit" based on 355 mm > 350 mm. So to make the inch and cm pages match, I might have to go back to unrounded inches. The problem with allowing a 5mm overage to "fit" is that it doesn't account for overstuffing. As that would be the case more than understuffing.

    I guess it comes down to: I'd rather see a red box, and have someone use their judgement than to show green and get yelled at.

    Edit 2: Ok, so it appears delta is cheating in metric. lol 14" == 355mm with reasonable rounding, so I need to look at all the airlines that specify inches first and use 355mm in my database for 14", even if they list 35cm for the convienience of non-US customers.

    Thanks for noticing that. Turned out to be a bit a of a rabbit hole.

    Edit 3: adjusted the sizes on delta and american to use 355, tweaked the rounding formula to still work where euro airlines specify 350 (thier conversion shows as 13.5" as on the KLM page). So should be good now.
    I love how you take time to explain each step (I am programmer so )

    Thanks! Didn't mean to send you down a rabbit hole to fix it, sorry about that.

    This is great! One bug I noticed when trying out the brain bag, it's flagging it as red for carry-on width, but it fits the exact dimensions like the depth does.

    Iceland air added, along with a good chunk of EE airlines.

    This is really neat, nice project! Would you add Icelandair, please? https://www.icelandair.com/support/baggage/allowance/
    Thank you!

    Anecdotally, Icelandair seems to also be fine with carry-ons in the de-facto US maximum size of 22" x 14" x 9". I'm not suggesting you include that in the data or anything, just putting it out there for people who might find this thread in the future while searching the forums for Icelandair.

    There’s no way to anon open a issue, sorry about that. I do mention needing an account on the about page. It’s also ok to post here, especially if it’s some airlines you’d like to see. I have some bag/airline adds in the queue waiting for the next push too.

    Greetings,
    I'm confused by the "add a bag/airline" link. When the page opens, it shows open issues but has no link to create a new issue. It's not immediately clear that I need to create an account or that an account is required to open an issue. I am on a mobile device, if that makes any difference.

    This is a fantastic idea and I appreciate your sharing it! elisa

    Thanks for the link, didn't know about that.

    Also, just pushed an update with more airlines/bags, a few corrections, and now the weight will be in pounds when inches are selected as the unit.
