Business-class travel policy.

Carry-on usually isn't a problem.

Re: Best business luggage

Ms family loves the Longchamp collections. Especially the canvas/leather collections that have very classic beige or khaki colours. Plus, you can bring extra folder LC bags and open them when needed for extra storage. I recently bought a matching carry on suitcase (with wheels) and it was perfectly ok for a week's travel and business class/long haul cabin carry on. He also brought along an extra foldable LC matching bag just in case he needed more space.

Saddly, we're economy unless it is intercontinental, then I agree, not a problem

Re: Best business luggage

Why do you all use bags? My carry on is a newspaper and the butler usually flies on ahead to my residence in the city to which i have to travel and prepares everything in advance. I thought everyone did the same?
Where do you put those big bags as well? There are no overhead storage things in my jet! Im very confusticated.

Re: Best business luggage

I would like to add that whatever luggage you get, don't expect to have warranty in case something happens like "handle damage, wheels", etc...

The terms and conditions of most companies are basically terrible for you:
Even samsonite, Salvador bachiller, etc...

They only cover manufacturer damage- If something strangely break like the "handle" go out without damage, etc... it's on you.

So basically the warranty is very very unlikely to cover anything you might encounter.

Re: Best business luggage

I'll vow for Briggs & Riley. Well built, comfortable, etc, but as mentioned, their warranty covers everything, all damage. I sent in mine (to Germany) and it was 'overhauled' - they not only repaired the handle but changed all the bits and pieces that showed wear, bruises, etc. Like new! You only pay shipping. It's as good as they say - any damage, caused by you or the airline or whatever.

Well worth the cost if you ask me, it's more expensive than a Samsonite but at the level of the other expensive ones (Tuomi, etc).

I have the same Transcend 20" roll-aboard as Village, and can go a week+ with it (after a week, must dry-clean if not returning home), would encourage you to learn how to do the same (search Google for tons of tips on how to pack). Besides impressing colleagues, makes for a much more pleasant trip. So, bragging rights as well as convenience (don't care for the bragging rights but now that I mention it, people do notice). Saved me a few times from missing flights, connections, etc. Aaah I remember in Indianapolis landing one Sunday evening (late), with meetings the other day in the morning, my (large) suitcase didn't arrive. Had to go to a Walmart to buy clothes! Never again!
