We are flying a combination of international flights and domestic US flights. We have never flown US domestic flights before.
Our 2 suitcases are within the check-in size for our international flights. However, I noticed the United Airlines check-in baggage size limit is less generous at 157cm total dimensions. I have measured our bags and if I include every bits that stick out (such as handles and wheels), my suitcases are over the limit by 2-3cm.
Do I need to buy new suitcases as I don't want to pay $200 oversized bags fees?
Thank you for your help.
