As you pack your luggage in preparation for your flight, consider the following tips to avoid problems with your carry-on and paying extra baggage fees:

  • All liquids, gels and aerosols must be in three-ounce or smaller containers. Larger containers that are half-full or toothpaste tubes rolled up are not allowed. Each container must be three ounces or smaller. 
  • All containers must be placed in a single, quart-size, sip-top, clear plastic bag. Gallon size bags or bags that are not zip-top such as fold-over sandwich bags are not allowed. Each traveler can use only one, quart-size, sip-top, clear plastic bag. 
  • Place bag in a bin or on the conveyor belt for X-ray screening, X-raying separately will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items. 
  • Pack all your coats and jackets in your checked baggage when possible. All coats and jackets must go through the X-ray machine for inspection. 
  • When in doubt, leave it out. If you're not sure about whether you can bring an item through the checkpoint, but it in your checked bag. 
  • Weigh your luggage BEFORE you get to the airport. Domestic flights allows 2 checked bags at 62 linear inches (158cm) / 50 lbs each and 1 carry on 45 linear inches (115cm). Internation flights may be different you should check with Sister Pierce for luggage allowances. 
  • If your checked luggage weighs ANY AMOUNT over the airline's allowance or is larger than the dimensions permitted by the airline you will be charged. 
  • You may want to send some of your things home before you leave, or decide whether some things are even worth the extra cost to take with you. 
 In order to board any flight, you must have at least one valid (not expired) form of government issued photo identification. This could be a driver's license or passport. POSSESSION OF CURRENT PHOTO IDENTIFICATION IS CRITICAL!!!! CHECK YOURS NOW.
