Global airlines are moving towards reducing the size of allowed carry- on. That means your 22 inch bag will no longer be in the overhead rack. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recommends a smaller bag of 21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches. Not all airlines will concur with the new standard, but here are 5 things you should never pack:

Money, jewelry (even good junk jewelry), electronics, medicine and your printed trip information. Especially if you are traveling solo.

Here is 1 thing you did not realize you should never pack:

Walking shoes: if your bags are delayed, comfy shoes are the hardest thing to replace quickly when traveling. Either wear them or carry them on.
