You are allowed ONE checked bag on international flights free of charge. The bag can weigh no more than 50 lbs and not be over 62 linear inches. You are allowed one carry on bag that is of a size to fit under a seat if necessary (45 L.I.. max). You can also bring along a laptop or food bag which is not counted.
