1 Please note: although the Dash 8-400 aircraft cargo door height is 51 in. (129.4 cm), the aircraft model operating a specific flight may change due to operational requirements on the day of travel. As such, any item exceeding 33 in. (83.82 cm) in height may need to be turned on its side or angled to fit through the opening. Items (including mobility devices) that that are too large to fit through the opening, cannot be turned on their side, or cannot be angled to fit through the cargo door opening, will not be accepted.
