Airline Luggage Restrictions Update:   

Airline Restrictions Enforced

Pack Light or Pay Extra
U.S. airlines have been cracking down on overweight, oversized and overabundant bags.  The penalties aren't new, but they're being vigorously enforced as airlines try to maximize revenue.

The Limit:  In coach class, most carriers permit you to check two bags, each weighing no more than 50 pounds and each measuring up to 62 linear inches (height + width + length).  If you exceed those limits, you'll be paying.

How Fees are Set Up:  Major airlines, such as Delta, charge $25 for each bag weighing 51 to 70 pounds and $100 for each bag weighing 71 to 100 pounds.  If a bag exceeds 62 inches, then Delta charges $100.  If a bag is overweight and oversized, then you'll be charged fees for both infractions.  And if you exceed your two-bag limit, Delta charges another $50.

Bottom Line:  Travel light and check your airline's restrictions before you go.
