Traveling with bulky or fragile items
We will accept fragile items as long as they meet all of the other requirements for checked or carry-on baggage.
Cabin seat baggage
If you are traveling with an item too large or too fragile to check or put in the overhead bin, you have the option to purchase a ticket for that item and have it travel as cabin seat baggage — in it's own seat on the plane.
Cabin seat baggage is charged 100% of the applicable adult base fare, plus 6.25% cargo tax. Please call Alaska Airlines reservations at 1-800-252-7522 (TTY: Dial 711 for Relay Services) for assistance. Our standard ticketing fee will be waived. Cabin seat baggage cannot be booked online.
In order to safely transport your cabin seat baggage, we request that you make reservations as early as possible. This ensures we can load the appropriate number of seatbelt extensions, and make sure that the specific seats required for transport of cabin seat baggage are available. We require at least 24 hour notice for groups of 5 or more traveling with cabin seat baggage.
In addition to the cabin seat baggage item, each passenger is limited to only one carry-on item (not to exceed 10" x 17" x 24") plus one personal item (such as a purse, briefcase or laptop) regardless of how many seats are purchased.
The seat purchased for the cabin seat baggage is allowed its own standard checked baggage allowance, fees, and waivers.
You can earn Mileage Plan™ miles for both your seat and for the cabin seat baggage seat. Mileage credit for cabin seat baggage does not count towards elite status.
