The new rules against carrying liquids, gels, etc in carryons have meant more checked in luggage. To no one's surprise, complaints about lost or delayed baggage have gone up.
I didn't know this bad, though.
The thing I have noticed is that the baggage claims areas are more crowded and the airlines are doing some silly things, like putting every CO RJ flight onto one carousel (IAH).
What are your experiences both here and abroad?
