I'm shocked not to find this using search (and I'm sure a bunch of you will jump on me and find lots of old threads -- thanks!) and on airline sites, but what are the minimum dimensions for a checked bag? The new regulations may finally make this a non-trivial rule.

There typically isn't a minimum size. Most (if not all) airlines have a max bag size and weight, and if the bag exceeds that, they add a fee. For example, FL allows a bag up to 62 inches (length+width+height). Any bag that is 63"-80" has an additional $65 charge per bag and anything over 80" is not accepted (with some sporting equipement exempted [like skis]). DL has a similar policy, but charge $100 per bag for any bag between 63"-80".

Cool, thanks. So you guys think I could check, say, an old airline amenity kit, just hypothetically? I guess in reality it's likely to get left in the hold or otherwise lost, but I'm glad to hear about the plastic bins, that makes it less likely.
