Is this bag too big as a carry-on?

iflybags.com is an interactive website that takes the guesswork, frustration, and mystery out of airline checked and carry-on bag allowances The site gives instant access to the most up-to-date airline checked baggage allowances (for over 300 airlines) and fees based on the specific traveler, number and weight of planned checked bags, and airline/itinerary specific information. Simply enter the itinerary and bag details into the iflybags website, and it instantly calculates the best option for travelers planning to check bags with their airline. The site also evaluates, optimizes, and presents the best combination of checked bags for multiple travelers on a single itinerary, taking into account traveler frequent flyer status.

Norwegian fees for carry-on bag

Effective immediately, flying with Norwegian at its lowest fare levels, or LowFare category will no longer be able to bring a free carry-on bag onboard – just a personal item that can be stowed under a seat. The new baggage rules apply to all Norwegian fares purchased on or after Thursday, January 23. Tickets purchased before January 23 are exempt from the new fee. But it won’t cost an arm and a leg to check a bag. One-way fees are $10 for long-haul flights; $8 short flights.
