Carry-on Baggage for Economy Class

When you bring your bag on board, you save time - avoid lines at the check-in counter and waiting at baggage claim - so you can ease in and out of the airport.
If you are travelling with any liquid, gel or aerosol items in your carry-on baggage, remember:
Customers departing from US airports on any domestic or international flight may bring carry-on bags through security and aboard the aircraft with trial-size toiletries (100 grams or less).
