We've updated our handy reference guide for the major Australian airlines (Qantas and Virgin Australia, plus Jetstar, Rex and Skywest), explaining the limits you'll find -- and what they actually mean. Size is often stated by adding up the length, width and depth of a bag, but some airlines also quote maximum sizes in each dimension, or insist that your bag fit inside that little testing stand at check-in. Size can also be tricky on a smaller plane, where a perfectly acceptable carry-on bag might not fit in the overhead bins or underneath the seat in front of you. Sometimes, size rules differ for rigid cases (like a normal carry-on) and soft-sided cases (like suit carriers). And the obscure "personal item" is sometimes allowed in addition to your luggage, but sometimes must be within your limit. Business Class passengers are permitted one additional main item (2 main items in total) of carry-on baggage, as long as each main item does not exceed 10kg, with a total combined carry-on baggage weight of up to 20kg.
Bottom line: 7kg over two bags, plus personal item (which might include a laptop or "reading matter"), unless you're in international business, where it's two 7kg bags plus personal item. For clarity, that means you can take 7kg plus whatever your laptop weighs, but Virgin does say "A laptop in thin satchel-style laptop bag is considered to be a personal item.


One small bag or briefcase (total linear dimensions 105cm), plus one non-rigid suit pack or garment bag that does not exceed dimensions of 114cm x 60cm x 11cm (total linear dimensions 185cm).
Two small bags, each not exceeding: depth 23cm (9in), height 34cm (13in), length 48cm (19in).
Rex's baggage policy page also strongly suggests you check with their staff whether your luggage will fit: "Passengers that are unsure if their cabin baggage exceeds cabin baggage limits should approach Rex Staff to get them tested BEFORE check-in closes so we are able to check in the bags if necessary. Excess baggage fees will also be levied if total checked baggage including offloaded cabin baggage exceeds the 15kg checked baggage limit. Aviation journalist and travel columnist John took his first long-haul flight when he was eight weeks old and hasn't looked back since.
I've seen Qantas, Virgin, and Jetstar all weigh passenger's carry-on from time to time, especially when the baggage looks obviously overweight.
I've also seen plenty of people's bags carried back off the plane after the cabin crew find them too large to fit in the overhead bins. I'd say it'd be unwise to ever count on being allowed to carry on more than your allowance.


When Qantas introduced its Next Generation Checkin they stopped weighing bags by hand, now its done at the self checkin bag-drop which means they can be a lot tougher on excess weight, there's no human to say "Oh, you're over by a few kilos, never mind", so it's all very strict now.
Passengers with baggage exceeding cabin limits at the boarding gate will have their baggage offloaded. In some cases this happens at the gate, and in other cases this happens at check-in counters when the passenger asks to check only one of their 2 or more obviously oversized bags. They are also the harshest when it comes to letting you get away with a couple of kilos and Virgin, in my experience, are the worst of the two. It is quite entertaining the people who arrive almost last who complain there is no storage directly above their seat!!
We mostly travel business, but always do one or two economy flights along the way, so have to plan for that.
