Microwave is allowed through the checkpoint. please check with your airline for their policy. the final decision rests with the tsa officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint., " items such as desktop computers, tvs and microwave ovens cannot be checked in as baggage." if i were you i'd check with the specific airline. because if you cant check it in then its too big for carry on. so i cant see how you'd do it..
I'm flying within malaysia (fly with malaysia airlines) soon. i wanna bring my microwave oven back to my hometown. anyone have experiences in bringing kitchen appliances (fragile item) as checked baggage? what should i do to ensure that the item is not damaged? i cannot carry it as hand-carry luggage because it's quite big and heavy. thanks., have you ever started to pack and asked yourself if the item you’re holding is even allowed? the transportation security administration has a detailed list, but we found 10 surprising items not allowed in your carry-on luggage.
