Raj Purohit and his family — on the ground in clean shirts.

Saturday, July 30, was not a good day for Raj Purohit.

Booked on a flight from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles with his wife and child, the D.C.-based real estate associate broker arrived at the airport with his family with high hopes for his travels, having chosen Alaska Airlines ALK, -0.93% for his flight, which he says he’d had a good experience with in the past.

But when he arrived at the checkout counter, trouble began, he says. American Airlines AAL, -0.49% , a partner of Alaska Airlines, was operating the flight and they had different carry-on baggage requirements than did Alaska.
