Does somebody knows if United Airlines allows the CPAPs as a non counted item or they consider it as a carry-on. I have a small wheeled luggage ( 9'' X 14'' X 14'' ) for my CPAP/meds and wonder if it will be counted or not; I don't find any information about it in the United site. I'm leaving from Montreal to Il, I guess it will be a small airplane.

As a handicap you do have specific rights; some airlines have their own lists; here's TSA's "http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/specialneeds/index.shtm" Look through and print out rules that apply to you; (for example) I had to correct the TSA agent that we could take along a bottle of water FOR MEDICATIONS REQUIRED TO TAKE. First they balked, but they backed down. The key is to know your rights, be firm but not caustic, and REQUEST the serice you deserve. God Bless in your travels.

I know the only problem could be the wheeled issue. But yes it's a great idea to tell them I'm unable to transport it other way which is true.

OP is asking about a flight originating in another country (Canada). Any of our northern neighbors care to weigh in regarding regs for flights originating in Canada?
