Just starting to pack for our trip. I avoid checking luggage at all costs and am planning my usual 21" roller with a large "hand"bag (a designer "It" bag from ages ago - it's large and no longer stylish to carry out and about, but perfect for travel).
I haven't flown Air France in years and just looked at their carry-on restrictions - max for BOTH items is 26.5 lb/12 kg!!!! My usual carrier, Delta, has a more typical 50 lb max for JUST the carry-on bag. I have never packed enough into one carry-on to max out at 50lb, but 26.5 lb for 2 bags for an intercontinental trip just doesn't seem reasonable to me.
We booked through Delta and have a Delta connection before hooking up with the codeshared AF flight, if that makes any difference. How has your experience been with the carry-on weight restriction?
