Tag Results: Checked Baggage
Recently rated the most tech-friendly airline, Delta Airlines continued its tech trend by installing six cameras in a suitcase to show us exactly what journey our luggage goes on when we check it. Although the video leaves some to be desired (no TSA screening area photography allowed, for example, and the outdoor shots are at night), it’s no doubt interesting to see the journey that the bag makes, especially as it rides through a maze of conveyer belts reminiscent of the airport scenes in Toy Story 2 (which turn out to be pretty accurately portrayed, animated dolls aside).
Finally! A sliver of good news in the miserly airline fee world: Frontier Airlines is lowering – yes, lowering – its ticket change fee, plus shaving $5 off of its checked baggage costs for customers who book online, reports MSNBC.com.
Beginning with flights booked today, Frontier will charge $50 to modify coach class itineraries – half what it previously cost – and online luggage fees drop to $15, compared to $20 at the airport. Even cyclists will save some cash: The airline is eliminating its flat fee for bike checks and will instead charge just $20 to stash two-wheelers en route.
