Delta complicates the bag issue

DELTA AIR LINES has confirmed a new bag policy whereby passengers travelling to or from cities outside the United States can check two bags per passenger at no extra charge.  For customers between the US and Europe those in Economy Class will be charged USD50 (or the local equivalent currency) for the second checked bag.  Premium Class clients do not have to pay nor anyone who has purchased a full fare economy ticket.  When travelling within the United States, US Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, customers will be charged USD15 for the first checked bag and USD25 for the second checked bag (each way, for round trip).  They also get a heavier allowance, 18kg against 22.5kg.  North West, now part of Delta, has applied the same rules. www.delta.com
