Schumer the slum dog, wants government to get into it.
ScSchumer: Ch(NECN/CNN: New York, N.Y.) - Airlines charging a carry-on luggage fee is a "slap in the face" for travelers, according to one U.S. senator.
Spirit Airlines recently announced it will begin charging up to $45 for a carry-on bag. Sunday, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)said he will urge government regulators to prevent fees for carry-on bags.
"Passengers have hit a breaking point on the fees that are being imposed month after month and year after year," Sen. Schumer said. "It seems every time you buy an airline ticket there is something new you're being charged for, but charging a fee for carry-ons steps over the line."
Spirit's new policy is planned to start August 1st.
If you ever fly the main problem is the idiots who have to carry everything on. It is a danger to all in an emergency trying to get off the plane. Carry on luggage causes major delays in boarding and getting off the plane. They should at least let everyone with out carry on bags off the plane first. You with bags should sit and wait until we get off. But now he wants the feds to get involved. I wonder if they will come wipe our butts for us one day.
