Baggage: size and weight restrictions - Emirates

Check with Emirates Airlines what type of carry-on baggage you can carry on to the plane. Remember,  every person individually determines their own size of  their carry-on baggage. If it’s possible, choose a soft backpack instead of a stiff suitcase. It will be easier to adjust it to the requirements

Also, the baggage that is sent to the cargo must meet certain requirements. Check with Emirates Airlines for the guidelines regarding the size and weight of your baggage.  The number of baggage depends on the class or rate in which you are traveling in.
