What are the baggage regulations on air travel nowadays?

If I take a domestic plane trip, what are the current regulations on baggage? I know Delta limits carry-on luggage to one piece, maximum 22" X 14" X 9". In addition, would I be allowed to carry on a laptop case with a computer, power supply cable, and some personal items (toothbrush, hairbrush, etc.) inside as well? What about prescription meds?

    This varies by airline, by ticket class, and even by route. You can find the information you need on your airline’s website.

    Very good

    Delta also allows you to have checked baggage too.

    Each Airline has their specific rules for what you can have and it depends on if you paid for a first class ticket or the cheap discount no frills price.

    What about prescription meds? Are you opening a pharmacy or just YOUR needed supply the next few weeks?

    Can go in your carry on.

    Delta and the other Airlines have websites to answer your many questions.

    So: you can carry two items

    for example

    one a laptop in a case with accessories

    one a piece of luggage

    that meet the restrictions mentioned on that page.

    You could also carry the single, larger piece of luggage

    **and put the laptop with accessories in that luggage**

    and then take them out of the luggage on the plane for use during the flight.

    You'd have to look at Delta's rules for specifics. There's no universal allowance.

    Commonly, a second carry on item is allowed. It has to be small enough to fit under your seat, though. It is typically not allowed on your lap or in the overhead compartment.
