    The airline website says one carry on not to exceed 5k and one personal item (no weight specified).


      In that case, good luck jeffmac! You can totally do it!


        Just to drop a coda on this posting I thought I would let every body know how the trip went. Thank you all for the great advice!

        I ended up being a touch over weight restrictions (about 12 pounds) on the TriStar, but funny thing about a suitcase that looks small, nobody pays it any mind at all! The only issue I had the entire trip was an American airlines commuter flight from Miami back to Nashville where they wanted to gate check the Tristar and I was too tired to fight with the guy. I was just happy to be heading home!

        The pic below is from downtown Sao Paulo.

        Brazil is a country full of contradictions, with modernity cheek to jowl with squalor. Graffiti is on everything and urban planning has not occurred to them yet. The people were warm and welcoming and I ate like a pig the whole time.
