Single items exceeding 70 pounds and/or 62 linear inches will be counted as 2 pieces and, therefore, fulfil the allowance for a passenger.

Carry-on baggage must fit under the seat and may not exceed 45 linear inches (length plus width plus height).

Baggage weight may be further limited due to type of aircraft or other restrictions.
