Before You Fly

Baggage

Everything you need to know from restrictions to lost luggage.

When packing for both domestic and connecting international flights, follow our suggestions to avoid any setbacks.

Always pack your own baggage. Check weight and size restrictions for checked baggage with your airline. Put your name and address on all checked and carry-on luggage. Remove all old bag tags to avoid confusion. Avoid carrying metal items that may trigger metal detector alarms (e.g. belts, buttons, body piercings and steel toe shoes). Make sure your baggage does not contain any restricted items.
