What is Continental Airlines Carry on Luggage Policy?

When you carry on your luggage you can avoid long lines and lost time at the check-in counter. Of course, you need to be aware of Continental’s carry on policy before you move forward with this. There are some items that you are allowed to carry on, as well as others that must be checked.

Carry on bags must meet the following requirements set forth by Continental:

1. Bags must not exceed 45 linear inches when adding the length, width, and height.

2. Bags are not permitted to weigh more than 40 pounds.

Continental allows passengers to carry on one bag and one personal item. Personal items can include the following: purse, briefcase, camera case, laptop computer, personal entertainment device, or other similar items.

Personal aid items such as canes, braces, and wheelchairs are also permitted to be carried on if the passenger is dependent on them for their safety. If traveling with an infant, one item, such as a diaper bag, stroller, or other type of child seat is permitted.

If you keep Continental’s carry on luggage policy in mind you may be able to reach your destination without having to check any bags. Imagine the time and money that this would save!
