AIRLINE & RAILROAD
BAGGAGE REQUIREMENTS

Several things to consider when purchasing luggage:

  • General baggage requirements -- how many pieces and the sizes that the carrier will allow to travel with you.
  • Carry-on requirements and check-in requirements
  • Requirements for domestic flights are not always the same as for international flights
  • Requirements for domestic carriers are not always the same as for foreign carriers
AMTRAK REQUIREMENTS


Amtrak Requirements

Both carry-on and checked luggage are subject to limitations.  Check the website: www.amtrak.com for details.

AIRLINE REQUIREMENTS


Airline Requirements

Before purchasing a new piece of carry-on luggage, make sure it meets the most restrictive dimensions 22 x 14 x 9".

Most airlines limit the number of carry-ons to 1 piece, but often exclude business cases, computer cases, handbags, diaper bags, coats and items to assist those with disabilities.

Alert: When packing, do not overstuff a legitimate carryon; this may effectively disqualify it.
