US Air Carry On Restrictions

Can anyone tell me about weight restrictions for carry on bags on US Air to Italy? I'm packing as light as possible anyway, but want to be safe. One roller bag and one shoulder bag.

I believe it is 50 lbs. You can take more but it cost like 25 bucks extra.

I would suggest you go to your airline's website and inquire about carry-on weight restrictions. Checked baggage is 50lbs now. Anything over, you are charged.

Another reason to go to the airline website and check carefully, as Gela says, is that I have heard that (is this only an urban legend?) that sometimes, on some airlines, the weight restriction can change/gets lower if there is a leg that departs from a European destination rather than the US. Has not happened to me but I've heard rumors.
