Carry-on and Checked Baggage Policies

Pop quiz:  1) What is the 3-1-1 rule of checked baggage?  2) Are there any domestic US airlines currently not charging for the first piece of checked baggage?

Answers:

  1. Each container of carry-on liquid/gel must be in a container 3 oz or smaller, and these containers must be placed in one quart-size plastic zip-top bag.  This bag must go through security separately.  Travel Tip:  Purchase food or beverages for the plane after you pass through security!  Questions about what is allowed for carry-on?  Check out www.tsa.gov for the latest regulations concerning baggage and security.
  2. Currently, Jet Blue and Southwest do not charge for the first piece of checked baggage.
