Technically, there are weight limits for both checked baggage and carry-on baggage.
For checked baggage, each piece can not exceed 50 pounds. If you check 2 bags, with one weighing 56 pounds and the other weighing 32 pouunds, they will make you redistribute the items so each bag is under 50 pounds. (I witnessed this within the past 2 weeks!)
There is also a weight limit on carry-on bags, but as long as you can carry them easily by yourself, chances are that nobody will question them. (Nobody will check with a scale or tape measure, unless it is very obvious.)
You are not restricted in coach as to the upper level or lower level seating, unless you specifically booked lower level seating. However, they generally save them for handicapped people or those who have difficulty with stairs. I once booked lower level seating, but was asked if I would sit on the upper level.
Take it easy .......
Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!
The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!
