Carry-on baggage weight restrictions
JetBlue currently does not have a limit on the weight of carry-on bags for domestic or international flights; however, please make sure that you're able to place your items in the overhead bin if no assistance is available and the item does not fit under the seat in front of you.

Carry-on regulations and details

FAA/TSA regulations allow each customer to take one (1) carry-on (garment bag, backpack, suitcase, pet carrier, etc.) and one (1) personal item (purse, briefcase, laptop, etc.) onboard the aircraft. FAA/TSA regulations also allow the following items, as these do not count towards the customer’s carry-on limit:

  • Special items (coat, umbrella, infant car seat, etc.)
  • Assistive devices (wheelchairs, canes, walkers, etc.)

Closets for hanging garment bags are not available on our aircraft.

Electronic cigarettes may NOT be used or charged on board JetBlue aircraft. 

Carry-on bags are the sole responsibility of the customer and JetBlue will assume no liability for property carried onboard the aircraft.
