All sizes in inches. Linear inches = Length + Height + Width
We would generally recommend that your carry-on piece does not exceed the dimensions - 22" x 14" x 9" and does not exceed a weight of 40lbs
New Security Measure : No knives or cutting instruments of any kind are allowed on any carry-on baggage.
CHECKED BAGGAGE: Domestic U.S. flights generally allow 2 free checked baggage items. Some airlines will allow a third piece, but no carry-on piece may be taken. A good rule of thumb is that the first checked piece should not exceed a dimension of 62 linear inches and a weight of 50lbs. (Depending on the airline, smaller size and weight restrictions may apply to additional checked pieces. We recommend you check specifically with the airline)
*Most airlines will allow oversize, overweight, or additional baggage for an additional fee which varies depending on the situation. Please contact a particular airline or visit their website for further info.
International flights generally have the same size and weight allowances but may cut down on the # of pieces that can be checked. Allowance variations exist depending on the destination country. Check with a specific airline for more information.

|Airline Baggage Liabilities|
These are general guidelines which most airline carriers abide by.
When traveling via an Airline it is possible your luggage may be damaged in some way. In the past, generally speaking, airlines have paid for repairs to most types of damage to luggage. Today things are changing and airlines are becoming stricter in enforcing the policies regarding the types of damage they are responsible for.
New: Many airlines will not cover damage to wheels and outside handles (including the pull out handle systems found on most new suitcases today)
