Carry-On Summary

JetBlue customers can bring two items of carry-on baggage: one carry-on bag/suitcase, and one additional "personal item", such as a purse, briefcase or laptop.

Weight limits are not specified, but you must be able to place the item into the overhead bins or beneath the seat in front of you. The size limits are 17x13x8 inches for the personal item, and 22x14x9 inches for the normal carry-on bag. Please note, these carry-on sizes are slightly smaller (about 1-2 inches per dimension) than previously allowed a few years ago, so be sure to double-check the size of carry-on luggage before packing your bags.
