Most airlines have a size limit on the bag, which is available on pretty much every airlines website. Normall weight and number of bags is the issue. Most airlines limit you to two checked bags with a weight limit of 50 lbs/bag. Over 50lbs will cost you money. Usually at least $50. Southwest airlines allows 3 checked bags with the 50 lb weight limit.

I had a fuel gun held at the AA check-in counter when I went down to Puerto Rico for their Latin Cup. They smelt some fuel residue and was not comfortable with that. Not even to place in my checked luggage.

Fortunately for me, the country manager for AA was my next door neighbor and I simply told the check-in girl to give it to him. I got it back when I returned.

So, make you wash it out with detergent.

Normally I have checked my fuel gun (rinsed it out with water) but that was one of the things that I shipped to the sedan nats.
