American Airlines carry-on allowance, France (CPAP?)

Jump to last reply

I've recently started using a medical device called a CPAP machine, for sleep apnea, and I need to take it with me to France during our upcoming vacation. It packs up in a small kit 15 X 12X 5.5 inches. The supplier strongly recommends that it not be packed in checked luggage.

There is no questions that on a domestic flight, I could carry this device on board. Furthermore, medical devices can be carried in addition to all other carry-on baggage allowances.

However, I've called American Airlines twice, and gotten conflicting information about allowed checked baggage on trips to France, and specifically, returning from France. One agent told me that I can carry the CPAP kit as a separate item, just as in the US. However, another agent told me that a limit of one carry-on will be strictly enforced when going through security in France, and that I had better somehow manage to get the CPAP into a single carry-on.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I don't want to take any chance that I'll have a problem getting both items on board (in either direction). My carry-on bag, other than the CPAP, is crammed with expensive electronics: a computer, PDA, 2 cellphones, GPS, and 2 cameras and chargers. I don't want to take any risk of being forced at the last minute to check either that carry-on OR the CPAP kit.

The American Airlines web page on the carry-on allowance can be found at:

http://www.aa.com/aa/i18nForward.do?p=/travelInformation/baggage/carryOnAllowance.jsp

It notes: "Additional items that will be allowed above and beyond the restrictions listed above include ... assistive devices for passengers such as wheelchairs, walkers and CPAP machines."

It then has a chart of "Exceptions to U.S. Policies", but France is not mentioned.
