Delta Air Lines Charges Returning Soldiers for Checked Bags

Another reason to hate the US Airlines…As if we needed another reason.

But this is truly despicable.  Charging checked baggage fees to soldiers returning from fighting in Afghanistan????

Unbelievable…

From Gadling.com:

A team of returning soldiers from Afghanistan was hit with an unpleasant surprise upon their arrival into the United States this morning. The squadron, bringing a full load of gear with them back from the Central Asia was sacked with the baggage fees in place at Delta Air Lines, which, despite the agreement that they have with the armed forces charged the soldiers extra baggage fees.

In sum, the group spent nearly $2800 in baggage fees for their gear, money that had to come straight out of their pockets.
