Max Weight: 100 lbs.
Max Size: 80 in.
Carry-On Items: Limited to one bag and one personal item. Both have max dimensions of 10x16x24.
Notes: Hip Hip Hooray for Southwest. Yes, your first two bags are free. Also, if both of these bags are overweight and oversize, you are not charged for both fees. You are only charged one fee of $50. The only time you incur multiple charges is when you get over 2 bags. If your 3rd+ bag is overweight or oversize, you will be charged the applicable standard bag fee + the $50 fee. Even in this case, you are not charged both overweight and oversize fees, it is just one $50 overweight/oversize charge plus the standard bag charge.
