Full Answer

Southwest considers items such as purses, briefcases, cameras, food containers or laptops to be personal items rather than carry-on bags. Each customer may bring one personal item aboard the plane in addition to the carry-on allowance.

Free checked bags on Southwest Airlines must measure a maximum 62 inches, combining length, width and height, and must not weigh more than 50 pounds. Bags beyond the first two bags or bags that exceed the size and weight requirements are subject to an additional fee.
