    WestJet is making changes to reduce what its passengers can bring aboard flights.

    After April 4, travellers will only be allowed one piece of carry-on luggage and one personal item.
    The airline had previously allowed passengers to bring two carry-on items and a personal item.

    Carry-on luggage includes items such as suitcases, backpacks or bags and must fit a specific sizing device.

    Personal items include smaller things such as small purses, laptop bags or child restraint devices. For parents travelling with infants a diaper bag is also permitted over and above the carry-on allowance.

  2. Stupid tiing. why didn't they do it before winter set in. Overheads are full of winter clothing these days, let alone bags and other crap people bring on board

    WestJet gives all pax one free checked bag, so this isn't quite as bad as it sounds.

    They allowed one more bag onboard than Air Canada does; now they're even. But Air Canada only gives free bags on routes that don't involve a US airport.
