Carry on baggage at the gate

Know what you can carry on

There are some items that can only travel in your carry-on bag (and some items that must be checked). Make sure you know where to pack these restricted items – and if you can carry them on.

Carry-on: 1 bag and 1 personal item

Your personal item must be smaller than your carry-on baggage (like a purse, briefcase or laptop bag) and fit under the seat. Diaper bags (1 per child), child safety seats and medical or mobility devices don’t count as your carry-on or personal item.

  • If your items don’t fit in the overhead bin or under the seat, they may need to be checked
  • There may be additional carry-on baggage restrictions at certain airports or on certain airplanes
Carry-on baggage allowance is 22 inches high by 14 inches long by 9 inches wide


  • Shouldn’t exceed 22 x 14 x 9 inches / 56 x 36 x 23 centimeters (including handles and wheels)
  • Must fit in the sizer at the airport

Musical instruments are also considered a carry-on item and must fit in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.

Specialty and sports equipment policies

In addition, when traveling with a pet, the kennel or container counts as your carry-on and the carry-on pet fee also applies.

Traveling with pets


TSA allows certain duty-free liquids through security in your carry-on bag if they’re packaged in a security tamper-evident bag. If you’re traveling with liquids or are unsure about any item, please contact the TSA.
