A global airline association said Wednesday that it was scrapping its recommendation to reduce the size of carry-on bags for air travellers after an “intense” response in North America.
The International Air Transportation Association (IATA), a Montreal-headquartered trade group whose members represent nearly 85% of total air traffic, said that it is cancelling its proposal after “significant concerns” were raised in North America.
“This is clearly an issue that is close to the heart of travellers. We need to get it right,” said Tom Windmuller, IATA’s senior vice president.
