Each passenger may check two pieces of checked baggage, 70 pounds each, up to 62 linear inches (the sum of the length plus the width plus the height) in size. Family members may pool their baggage allowances. Hand-carried baggage must fit under the seat or in the overhead compartment, if available. Space-A passengers are allowed 2 bags, but each bag can only weigh up to 70 pounds.
Each passenger is permitted to hand-carry one article (small luggage, garment bags, backpack, etc.) and one personal item (cosmetic case, purse, briefcase, small boxes, packages, etc.) for storage in the passenger cabin area. The weight of these items will not be considered as part of the passenger's baggage authorization on military aircraft. Hand carried items will be no larger than 45 linear inches and must fit under the passenger's seat or in the overhead compartment. Items that are too large will not be accepted for passenger cabin storage and must be checked-in. Baggage sizers will be used to aid the passengers and the PSA in determining baggage dimensions.
AMC adheres to TSA guidelines (listed below) for hand carried baggage.
3-1-1 for Carry-On Bags: 3.4oz. or 100ml bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. The 3.4oz/100ml container size is a security measure.
Consolidate bottles into one bag and X-ray separately to speed screening. Declare larger liquids. Medications, baby formula and food, breast milk, and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.
NOTE: Baggage weight may be limited due to type of aircraft or other restrictions. Check with your Passenger Service Center for more information.
Excess baggage is only authorized for passengers traveling TDY or TAD on official orders. Each passenger is authorized two pieces of baggage not to exceed 70 pounds each or 62 linear inches (length plus width height). Bags larger than 62 linear inches and/or heavier than 70 pounds will be counted as two pieces. Checked baggage exceeding the allowed weight criteria will be counted as an extra piece for each increment of 70 pounds. The maximum charge per piece for FY17 is $125. Excess baggage fees for space required passengers may be paid with the Government Travel card where services are available.
Note: For Space Required travelers, standard issue B-4 duffle bags are authorized to weigh 100 pounds and still considered one piece. Only one of these bags will be allowed.
