Canada restricts carry-on luggage on flights to US!

Jump to last reply

Just coz someone was able to pass through security checks with explosives in his underwear, Canada Transport has banned carry-ons altogether on all flights to U.S.! I was flying in to New York from Toronto—just a 90 minute flight for which I had to wait 5 hours at the airport undergoing innumerable delays and security checks. In the end, I was just happy I was able to carry my 10K camera and accessories on-flight. I don’t mind checking in all my baggage – in fact, a good turnout from all of this could result in less delays at security checkpoints since there would be less luggage to check. But the airlines should have some system in place for tracking our check-in luggage so that it doesn’t get lost or robbed! I’ve had too many bad experiences on this count. I’m all for air safety and the bare essentials carry-on rules, but I want a fool-proof system for check-in luggage, or be given full compensation from airlines. What do you guys think?
