New Rules Means Poor Baggage Service

Thu Oct 05, 2006 10:07 pm

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?
Tort reform now. Throw lawyers in jail later.

Quoting Texdravid (Thread starter):

Say what? You mean the entire baggage claim in Terminal B at IAH is now down to only 1? I find that hard to believe but haven't gotten bags from "B" in forever.
