Lines will no longer through-check baggage

Jump to last reply

Today's Chicago Tribune Travel Section has an article that revisits the looming problem of baggage. Delta, Hawaiian and US Airways say they will no longer transfer through-checked baggage unless you are traveling on a single ticket.

You will have to leave security in an airport, claim baggage, re-check baggage, go back through security.

What an unnecessary mess for the traveler and for TSA. Obviously, these airlines are greedy for their luggage fees. (OK, so *charge* me to through-check. Just don't make me claim and re-check!)

Hawaiian announced they were starting to do this as of June 1, then backed down. Now it's back on the agenda for three lines as of Jan. 1.

Do they WANT to encourage carry-on, with all the departure delays that causes?
