SENATORS PROPOSE LEGISLATION AGAINST CARRY-ON BAG FEE

A group of United States Senators are sponsoring legislation that wound confront airlines that are adding new fees associated with carry-on luggage. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg are sponsors on the bill. The legislation comes after Spirit Airlines announced last week that it would begin charging customers up to $45 for carry-on luggage. The policy could spur other airlines to follow suit and impose a similar fee. The bill is called the Block Airlines’ Gratuitous (BAG) Fees Act, or the BAG Fees Act. Airlines do not have to kick up any money for this fee to the federal government because it has been ruled that carry-on luggage is non-essential for air travel and fees collected on them would be non-taxable.
