Delta Airlines canceled free luggage for economy-tariffs

Delta Airlines canceled free baggage for flights to Europe with economy rates booked

Airlines sell inexpensive economy-tariffs to compete with low-cost carriers.

Delta Airlines plans to charge a fee for the transportation of luggage for passengers buying economy-tariffs. At the moment this rule applies to flights to Europe . The airline plans to charge $ 60 for the first bag delivered in luggage, and $ 100 for the second one. This innovation applies to tickets purchased after December 6 and the date of departure after April 10, 2018.

For other types of tariffs, this rule will not be extended, Delta said. Passengers will be able to carry at least 1 bag free of charge (depending on the type of tariff).

Airlines such as Norwegian Airlines, WOW Air and other low-cost carriers that fly to Europe have long been charging for baggage.

Similar rules are also applied by American air carriers Spirit, Frontier and Allegiant, which offer to buy cheap tickets, but additionally charge a fee for all additional services.

Economy tariffs were created by large airlines to match the pricing policies of small air carriers and their rules. Passengers who purchased tickets with an economy-tariff, there is no way to pre-select seats in the cabin of the aircraft. United Airlines and American Airlines have restrictions on the size of hand luggage. It is necessary that hand luggage can be freely placed under the seat of the aircraft.

Large air carriers are hoping that passengers, after learning about all the restrictions and bans of economy-tariff tickets, will buy tickets of the usual economy class. The difference in the price of tickets for the usual economy class and economy-fare tariffs depends on the air carrier, the flight route and the date of travel.
