Baggage: size and weight restrictions - American Airlines

Check the hand baggage policy at American Airlines. Remember that the baggage dimensions are determined individually by each air carrier. If it is possible, choose a soft backpack instead of a rigid suitcase. It will be easier to adapt it to the requirements.

Checked baggage must also meet certain requirements. Check the permitted weight and size of checked baggage at American Airlines. The number of suitcases that you can take with you depends on the booking class or tariff.
