I feel your pain.Don't they usually restrict boxes, etc around Christmas?
My flight (EWR/SDQ) on Black Friday was an hour late leaving -
the Dominicans had so many shopping bags/carryon/etc that the boarding/loading process was a disaster
When I used to do a lot of traveling, I would buy supercheap suitcases or duffle bags at Walmart and use those. I never had a problem and it would also give me a little extra space to throw in more 'stuff'.johne, and others: NO BOXES on American Airlines or JetBlue to the DR:
From the American Airlines site:
What you can’t bringWhen traveling to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central or South America, you will not be able to travel with:
*See seasonal limitations for Cuba exceptions.
- Overweight items (more than 70lb/32kgs)
- Oversized items
- Excess bags (only 2 checked bags allowed)*
**A “box” is any container that isn’t normally used for transporting items for air travel; this includes plastic tubs, containers and coolers.
Can you check in a cardboard box as luggage in Jetblue? According to Jetblue cardboard boxes/plastic bins will not be allowed on any international flight except for flights to/from Cuba. Non-hazardous items may be packed in checked bags. Humanitarian organizations transporting supplies will be subject to the same bag allowances and guidelines as other Guests.
