• United Airlines getting stricter on size of carry-on bags

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A major airline at Charlotte Douglas Airport will be getting stricter about the size of passengers’ carry-on bags.

    United Airlines is using new "bag-sizers" to make sure the bags aren't too big for the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of travelers.

    The company said there's no change in the size limit -- just a better measurement.

    Bags that are too big will have to be checked for $25.
