DELTA Changes Luggage Policy For Military After Public Outcry Over Soldier Fees
DENVER - Delta Airlines has changed its luggage policy regarding U.S. Servicemen and women. The policy change comes after soldiers returning from Afghanistan claim the airline charged them hundreds of dollars in extra baggage fees.
Staff Sgt. Robert O'Hair of Lochbuie is one of the soldiers expressing his displeasure with Delta Airlines. He said the response to the YouTube videos is unexpected. The soldiers said they just "wanted to vent."
O'Hair and other members of his unit were on the final leg of their return from Afghanistan, taking a Delta flight from Baltimore to Atlanta to get back to Fort Polk, La.
They were told they had to pay an extra $200 for a fourth bag as excess luggage. >>>CLICK HERE FOR PREVIOUS COVERAGE
