The Carry-on Crackdown Continues
A little while back, I wrote about how United is cracking down on their carry-on rules. Well, when I flew out of JFK Airport yesterday, I noticed that Delta has started cracking down on carry-on bags themselves—BIG time. Instead of checking the size of passengers’ bags at the gate, they’re now doing it before security. Delta agents now even put carry-on stickers on each carry-on bag, and they have sizers that they make you try to fit your bag in if it appears close to the maximum dimensions.
My advice to you to save time and/or money is to either pack lighter, ship your bags ahead of time, pay the fees or fly Southwest Airlines, since they don’t charge for the first two bags. And make sure to know your airline’s baggage rules before you get to the airport!
