United Airlines Carry on Bags

A crackdown on over-sized carry-on bags at United Airlines.

FOX News Radio's Lisa Brady reports:

Size limits for carry-on bags aren't new, but airlines don't always enforce them down to the inch. More and more passengers, though, trying to avoid the checked-luggage fees that started in 2008 so United Airlines is now launching what it describes as a public awareness campaign, including bag-sizers in some cases before security checkpoints, sending passengers with over-sized carry-ons back to the ticket counter to check the bag and pay the fee. The norm had been letting them check-it at the gate if the bag was too big and waiving the fee. Some passengers convinced it's all about the fees. United says it's hoping to speed the boarding process.
