They caught a lot of grief for it, and Delta Airlines changed its policy after charging soldiers just back from Afghanistan for having extra bags.
I call it a slap in the face.
Elmer asks: "Is everybody greedy now days?"
Ann from Lawton: "No active duty military personnel should EVER have to pay checked baggage fees when flying in their military capacity."
Interesting response from Tony, a veteran himself: "They need to act more professional and not expect a handout because they wear a uniform."
Not a handout Tony, a thank you.
And Green Lantern says: "If they are on orders then they should NOT have to pay.
If they are traveling for pleasure they are NOT entitled to any more consideration than any citizen is."
I disagree, their military ID should get them special consideration.
Taknovr writes: "maybe some of the Delta boss men in charge of their policies should have their butts plopped down in the middle of the war for a few months and then see how they feel about it."
And Kelly shared this experience her soldier son had with Southwest Airlines: "When my son pulled out his debit card to pay the fee for an over-the-limit bag, the Southwest ticket agent said 'There's no charge for a man who's keeping me free'."
