Airline Carry-On Information

Tired of being surprised by sudden and unexpected bag fees at the terminal? Luggage Base has a quick one stop guide to today's most popular airlines and their carry-on restrictions so you never have to pay extra. The FAA has limited passengers flying within the United States (including international flights going to and from the United States) to one carry-on and one personal item, which includes purses, briefcases, laptops, and small backpacks. In addition to one carry-on and one personal item, passengers may bring onboard a coat, umbrella, book or newspaper, small bag of food and devices such as wheelchairs and walkers. Persons traveling with children can also bring on strollers, safety seats and diaper bags. On crowded flights, you may be asked to relinquish some or all of your carry-on. Always be sure to double check with your airline before prior to your departure date for further questions, Travel Safe and Stay Informed with Luggage Base.
