U.S. Senator Rips United Airlines


United Airlines has announced that it will start charging customers to use the overhead bin on its planes. According to a spokesperson for the airline, the new pricing scheme will charge travelers a to-be-announced fee to carry on a second bag. Even though United made the announcement back in November, the news went largely unnoticed until New York Senator Charles E. Schumer blasted United over the weekend, saying, "The overhead bin is one of the last sacred conveniences of air travel. The fact that United Airlines—and potentially others—plan to take that convenience away unless you pay up is really troubling.”
