  • No oversized, overweight or excess bags will be accepted

  • Only one box will be permitted as part of a customer's free allowance; it must be the original manufacturer's box containing the original item

Carry-on baggage
Carry-on baggage for worldwide travel
For worldwide travel on United (including travel within the 50 United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada), you may carry on one bag and one personal item such as a purse, briefcase or laptop computer. Your carry-on bag
  • must fit under your seat or in the overhead bin;
  • should not be more than 9 x 14 x 22 in. (23 x 35 x 56 cm) (length x width x height) or 45 linear inches* (114 linear cm); and
  • may be required to travel as checked baggage if the bag cannot be safely stowed on a particular flight.

The following personal items are not counted toward your one bag and one personal item limit:

  • Assistive devices (canes, crutches, etc.)
  • Child safety seats for ticketed children
  • Infant restraint devices (infant seat with or without stroller, front pouch or back carrier)
  • Outer garments (coats, hats, etc.)
  • Reading material (a reasonable amount)
  • Umbrellas (one per passenger)
  • Food and beverages to be consumed onboard
  • One musical instrument not exceeding a size of 45 linear inches*

Please note that items must be stowed in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you. They may not be stowed in the seat back pocket.

*linear measurement = length + width + height

Liquids, gels and aerosols
Liquids, gels and/or aerosols are permitted through security checkpoints worldwide. Items must fit in one clear, resealable quart- or liter-sized plastic bag, in containers of 3 oz. (100 mL) or less. (For ease of memory, please follow the 3-1-1 rule.)

Plastic bags must be completely sealed and will be x-rayed separately at the security checkpoint.

The following items are allowed but must be presented to officials at security checkpoints if they are of greater volume than 3 oz. (100 mL):

  • Baby formula/milk, including breast milk and baby food in containers. You do not have to be traveling with a baby or small child for these items to be allowed.
  • Medications (liquid, gel or aerosol)
  • Liquids, juices or gels for diabetic passengers who indicate a need for such items to address their medical condition. (A letter from your physician is not necessary.)
Liquids, gels and/or aerosols (including duty-free items) purchased in the boarding area are permitted onboard the aircraft.

If you are connecting to another flight and are required to reenter through a security checkpoint, the regulations outlined above will apply, and no exemption will be made for items you purchased in the boarding area of your originating city.

Flights departing from or connecting through the United Kingdom
If you are departing from or connecting through London Heathrow (LHR), you are allowed one carry-on bag and one personal item as stated above; however, please note that the Department for Transport (DfT) regulations in the U.K. require that the 45 linear inches (114 linear cm) includes the handles and wheels of your carry-on bag.
