Hi, Im hoping anyone who has flown U.S. domestic (and especially American Airlines) can help me out here ..Ive recently found out that on our international flight our stroller and car seat for our 4 year old will count as part of our baggage allowance. The stroller bag alone exceeds the baggage dimension limits just because of the length of it so Im already stressing out. In reading the baggage allowance on the American Airlines website (we will be using them for 3 of our flights within the U.S.) it says that strollers and car seats do NOT count as part of your baggage allowance and you can bring them in addition with no extra charges. Can anyone who has traveled with their full amount of baggage (i.e. 2 bags per person) PLUS a stroller and/or car seat verify for me that this is true? I am REALLY HOPING it is. My second question is can anyone tell me how strict the airlines are on the SIZE of each bag? I know they give the dimensions and weights you arent to exceed and I know for sure they are strict on weight but what about size? Has anyones bags actually been measured by the airlines or are they pretty good about giving you some leeway as long as its not anything ridiculous? Last question ..How are they about flying with dried fruit, peanut butter etc? Just thinking if we buy some at DL and have lots left would like to take it on to Vegas with us rather than having to re-buy when we get there. Is food okay to fly to other states with?
