Oversize Box As Checked Bag

New Arrival

Hello! I am traveling with a large homemade pinata. It would only fit in a box that is 36in x 24in x 12in, however it is fairly light, maybe like 10 pounds. Would it just be $75 for the oversize fee?

Yes, based on those dimensions it would be considered oversized and you would be charged $75.  Just make sure total L+W+H doesn't exceed 80 inches.  Here's the policy:


Southwest will accept the first two checked bags for free provided that the bags do not exceed 50 lbs and 62 inches (L+W+H). Overweight items from 51 to 100 pounds and oversized items in excess of 62 inches but not more than 80 inches will be accepted for a charge of $75.00 per item one-way.
