Does a duffle bag count as a carry on or personal item?

And what are some things to bring to the airport when traveling without a passport? I'll be booking with American Airlines by the way and it will be my first time traveling.

    It can be counted as either. It depends on the size of it. A carry on would go in an over head bin. A personal item is smaller and can fit under the seat.

    You need a photo ID and your ticket/boarding pass.

    It depends on the size of the bag. A carry-on meets the dimensions for the overhead compartment, and a personal item must fit under the seat in front of you.

    You need to show government-issued photo ID to fly within the US. If you don't have a passport, you can use a driver's license, state ID card, military ID, etc. If you do not have proper ID, then you need to show up early and bring whatever identification you might have. There is no guarantee that you can fly in that case.

    A container of stuff COUNTS

    You can call it a purse, a shopping bag, a gym,bag, a duffel bag a tote bag ,your lunch bag,

    Does it fit UNDER THE SEAT that is a personal item.

    Does it fit in the bin is your carry on item.

    Stuffed to bursting capacity is harder to fit it in.

    You bring Government issued photographic Identification. MOST use a drivers license.

    In the event you arrive at the airport without valid identification, because it is lost or at home, you may still be allowed to fly. The TSA officer may ask you to complete an identity verification process which includes collecting information such as your name, current address, and other personal information to confirm your identity. If your identity is confirmed, you will be allowed to enter the screening checkpoint. You will be subject to additional screening, to include a patdown and screening of carry-on property.

    You will not be allowed to enter the security checkpoint if your identity cannot be confirmed, you chose to not provide proper identification or you decline to cooperate with the identity verification process.

    GO EARLY this process can take some time.You do not get FREE ticket for next flight if it delays you in line.

    What counts is the number of inches not the name of the item.

    A duffel bag is baggage. A ditty bag (overnight kit) is a personal item.

    A "STAR" Drivers license is ID for Interstate travel. That is the Minimal needed to travel.

    Bring your driver's license/state ID.

    The duffel bag must fit under the seat in front of you, so a small duffel bag can be a a personal item.

    They mean a daypack/bookbag.
