Each passenger is allowed one personal item and one carry-on bag with no charge. The allowed size and weight per bag is from 36in/91cm in total dimensions for the personal item, and 45in/115cm, not larger than 22in/56cm long, 14in/36cm wide, and 9in/23cm high for the carry-on bag. Fees and charges for checked bags vary but the dimensions shouldn't go beyond 62in/158cm and 50lbs/23kg. Note that more than one baggage charge may apply to a particular bag. A second checked overweight bag would incur both a second checked bag charge and an overweight bag charge. If that bag was also oversized it would incur an oversize charge as well.
