Packing your bags and carry ons
Take a few minutes to learn about what to expect at the airport. Learn about checked baggage fees and excess, oversize and overweight baggage.
Important carry-on info
- The FAA allows one piece of luggage and one personal item (like a purse or briefcase) per person. All carry-on bags must fit under the seat in front of you or overhead.
- Don't put batteries, medicines, keys or important documents in your checked bags. Keep them with you in your carry-on bag.
- Pack your 3.4 oz. (100ml) containers in a single, clear, one-quart zip-top plastic bag. Empty containers (that could contain liquids) are not allowed; and neither are partially used larger containers.
- Only one one-quart plastic bag is allowed per passenger, and the contents of the bag must fit comfortably inside.
- You can carry on electronic cigarettes, but you are not allowed to smoke them on board.
- TSA delayed changes to its prohibited items list; you may not carry on small pocket knives.
Check the name on your ticket
The TSA requires that the name on your ticket matches the name on the government ID you show at airport security exactly.
