And it may also differ from airport to airport, how well they follow  
the regulations. When I flew from Stockholm to Zürich the Swedish  
airport staff just smiled and told me "no problem, you're fine with  
that trunk", but when I was going the other way the staff in Zürich  
hit me with a USD 65 overweight fee for the very same suitcase.
