Delta is willing to check your rollerboard for free if the plane is full. But there’s a NEW POLICY: if you got your luggage through TSA, and you don’t check the bag, here at the gate, before boarding; and try to sneak on the flight with a. More than 2 pieces of luggage or b. A big piece of luggage that doesn’t really fit or c. Either of those things and you’re waiting for other people to check their bags so you don’t have to..Delta will charge the $25 to check your bag. Holding up the flight. So, come early. Volunteer to check that luggage for free, or make sure you just have the two pieces.
As much as I hate the “charging for luggage”(just raise the price of the flight…make it part of the social contract of bringing me, and my stuff around the world)… I think this treats customers like adults. By treating them like children, “do the right thing now or be punished if you wait.” You get warned a million times and then you get punished.
Treating adults like children…has this always been the way or is it new? Part of the adult sippy cup generation?
