Baggage Allowance

New Arrival

not much of a traveler so these bag restrictions are very confusing to me.  So my questions is if i have two carry-on bags plus my peronal purse will i have a problem getting both of my carry-on bags for free?  Or will I only be allowed two bags meaning leaving my purse behind?


Can someone help me clarify this for me?


Thank you!

Hi there!


You can check two bags under 50lbs for free. And you may have two carry-on items that will fit under the seat in front of you, or in the overhead bin. Your purse counts as one of your two carry on items. 


Happy travels!
