American Airlines Baggage Restrictions

Postby KarenS » Tue Jun 06, 2006 8:07 am

From PR Newswire: "Customers traveling on American and American Eagle to certain destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America will not be able to check boxes during the embargo period, due to heavy summer loads and high volumes of checked baggage to specific destinations. The baggage embargo applies to Guatemala City, Managua, Panama City, San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and San Salvador in Central America; Maracaibo, Cali, Medellin, and Quito in South America; Santo Domingo, Santiago, Puerto Plata, Port-au-Prince and Kingston in the Caribbean; as well as Mexico City, Guadalajara, Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosi, Chihuahua and Leon in Mexico. All American Eagle flights to and from San Juan are also included. There is a year-round box embargo for flights from and through New York JFK to all Caribbean and Latin America destinations. A year-round bag and box embargo is in effect for flights to La Paz and Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

Oversize, overweight and excess baggage will not be accepted for flights to the destinations covered by the bag embargo. Passengers will be limited to a maximum of two checked bags, each not exceeding 62 linear inches (computed by adding the length, width and height of the bag) and 50 pounds. One carry- on bag will be allowed with a maximum size of 45 inches and a maximum weight of 40 pounds. Sports equipment, such as golf bags, bikes and surfboards, can be accepted as part of the total checked bag allowance, although additional charges may apply. Walkers, wheelchairs and any other assistive devices are welcomed for customers with disabilities."
