When we travelled on Delta last week we had a rude discovery that the weight limit per bag had dropped to fifty pounds from seventy pounds. We had carried a large suitcase as we were travelling with a seven month old infant and did not want to bother with a number of smaller bags along with a stroller. It cost us an extra $25 on the flight down. Coming home both of our bags were over fifty pounds. We ended up buying a box for $10 to transfer some of our belongings into (nothing like transferring your underwear into a box at the checkin counter of MCO) Then the handle tears off the box before we can hand it to the feds. What a debacle. DW and I are thinking about looking for new luggage as our large suitcase seems to now be obsolete due to its size. Now I hear that the limits have gone back up to 70 pounds per bag. Has anyone heard if this is indeed the case?
