Would you like to add baggage to your reservation?

Purchase an extra carry-on weight allowance

So that you can travel with everything that you need, you can purchase an extra carry-on weight allowance of 22 lb (10 kg) to be split between the 2 items (44 lb (20 kg) total).

When you purchase an extra carry-on weight allowance at the time of booking or in My Trips, you will have benefits such as: priority boarding and priority to store your carry-on baggage in the overhead compartments. (Subject to availability).

Remember that if your carry-on baggage is oversized or overweight for your type of reservation, it must be checked in and will be subject to additional charges.

Checked Baggage

You may check in a maximum of 5 bags as long as each one doesn't weigh more than 55 lb (25 kg).

If a bag weighs more than 55 lb (25 kg), then it will be subject to an overweight baggage fee. Overweight baggage must not exceed 99.2 lb (45 kg).
