Why The Video Looks Shaky (Don Ward)
Updated: 06/18/2013 - We did a quick helicopter tour of the Black Forest burn area. Someone asked why the video looks shaky.
Starting this summer major airlines may be asking you to pay to check your carry on luggage. Airlines say they have been too lenient with oversized bags, but that will come to an end this summer.
Flights are expected to be full this summer and people who bring oversized bags cause headaches for flight crews trying to get everyone seated and flights out on time.
Alaska Airlines announced anyone with a bag that is too big to bring on board will be asked to check it at the gate and pay $25 per bag.
A carry on bag is allowed to be 10” wide and 24” tall. Airlines will be watching these measurements closely because baggage fees have become a large source of revenue. Last year baggage fees accounted for over $3.36 billion for the airline industry.
People are booking flights at a record pace this summer. The average number of passengers flying to destinations in the United States from June to August for each major airline is expected to be nearly 180 million. A record 26.8 million of those people will be flying internationally.
No matter where people will be traveling this summer, flights are expected to be full. Expect seating for families and space for carry on luggage to be sparse.
