Baggage Fee Blues

A maker of fashionable traveling vests got his ads booted from Delta's inflight magazine last month:

The proposed ad read: "The most stylish way to beat the system. Scottevest travel clothing has specialized pockets to help you stay organized and avoid extra baggage fees."

Scottevest founder Scott Jordan claims the ad got nixed because Delta Air Lines didn't want to bring attention to those annoying baggage fees. In the second quarter this year, Delta collected $256 million in baggage fees — the most of any airline in the industry.

You know, there's another way Delta could avoid attention being directed at their annoying baggage fees.....
