Re: Delta joins United, JetBlue in raising bag fees

I hope the airlines are ready for most passengers to bring an obscene size of carry-ons through to the gate now. Gate checking will happen on every single flight and I expect more fights to happen on-board. This is all on them.

Delta, Southwest, and even United are licking their lips at this. Even NK & F9 are as well considering there would be no advantage to booking AA over a ULCC.

As an example, N666DN for example received WL in 2010, and removed in 2016 when the plane was re-configured for charters. Is there some benefit to this, or some other reasoning? I thought w...
