Next month we are flying on KLM from LAX to Prague via Amsterdam for the RS Best of EE Tour. Due to the ongoing issues at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam we will have carry on luggage only. Our luggage is slightly larger than the size listed by KLM. Has anyone had a recent experience with KLM and carry on luggage?
We flew KLM Athens to Amsterdam a week ago. They weighed wheeled luggage in Athens at checking desk. I didn’t see sizes being checked. I did see many roller bags and small backpack going onto the plane also. We checked in our 21 inch rollers and carried on appenzell backpack. Nothing was weighed or sized for us. They lady next to us was asked if she had any carryon luggage she says I have this small backpack because my bag was lost on the here and I still haven’t received it yet. So they were weighing rollers that were not checked on. Flight was full.
They never check the carryon size ... until they do. That being said, my carryon for my KLM flight tomorrow is 1/4" +/- too wide. But I made the 12kg combined carryon / personal item weight limit (11.55kg). Of course I have another 2kg stuffed in the pockets of my cargo pants.
No way am I checking a bag through AMS, or flying KLM again.
James - Please report back on your KLM and AMS experiences.
