Hand baggage size restrictions for UK airlines

I have attached a link to an article in the Daily Telegraph which provides what I thought was a useful summary of the current hand baggage limits for some UK airlines along with suggestions of a suitable bag that complied with the limits.

I cannot confirm whether the suggested bags meet the limits or whether they are the best or cheapest option.

useful summary indeed but I would cross check with the airlines' baggage allowance to be sure before travel.

Funny MrSazza and I were talking about this very subject this morning.

On TATL carriers the only European carrier with an allowance that suits us is BA, as MrS's carry on is about 20kg and it's too fragile/valuable to check in.

Short haul it has to be BA or Easy Jet

Just wondering, with BA having a limit of 23 kg and Wizz Air having no limit, how do you lift it into the overhead locker?

MrSazza has no problem lifting it overhead, even I can lift it to shoulder level....BA do state that you have to be able to place it in overhead locker yourself.
