    Any idea which stores around Atlanta? I’ve been in the market for a new carry on and the price is right.

    Thanks for the hint! Went to TJ Maxx in Fairfield CA and they had one, which I got for $199.99 + tax. Headed over to Tumi outlet in Vacaville and the non-United version was $476 – 20% off = $380.

    Thanks for the tip! Found it in Palos Verdes. Question though: Tag says the bag is 22 x 16 x 9 in, while the regular Alpha 2 has a listed measurement of 22 x 14 x 9. The real measurement is 22 x 15.5 x 9 in. Anyone have the actual measurements of the Alpha, or Alpha 2? The SKU on the tag is 0220211D2U. A search of 0220211D2 yields nothing, but 022021D2 shows the Alpha (original). Just curious if United made the custom crew bag bigger than their official carry-on size on purpose, or if all Tumi Alpha bags are really 15.5 in wide. Also, I don’t see any United logo on the blue tag.

      Actually I’m not sure these are United crew bags. Look quite different from the pictures in their partnership announcement: https://hub.united.com/united-announce-next-generation-uniforms-2476331547.html. Maybe others who have seen them in person can confirm.

      Correction: Looks like the dimensions are consistent with the Alpha 2 Continental (22 x 16 x 9)… which unfortunately doesn’t fit most airline carry on requirements or sizers, if they are being strict. Also found some pictures that had a TUMI x United tag with this model number. Maybe these were prototypes for the partnership that ultimately United rejected and went with the bag in their press release?

    I saw one Saturday TJ Max Delray Beach, did not buy, it may be good for crew, but I could see United, other airlines making me check it for $50, will stick to 22 x 14 Travelpro, more pockets anyway, or my all aluminum Chinese Rimowa knockoff, $200, nicest case in any airport, better than Rimowa.

    Chatted with Tumi:

    Based on the information provided, your style number is listed as the United FC Expandable 2 Wheeled Carry-On which is specifically offered to united employees.

    Your item is our continental size. United does not offer an international size with the United blue luggage tag. They provided the continental size for their employees, which is 16″ wide. If you are interested in the international size, please check with United directly, as this item is not deeply discounted. I apologize for the inconvenience.
    Is there anything else I may assist you with today?

      I called the Salem NH Tj Maxx, they looked for me but none available, maybe they just sold ?
