Baggage Liability to Increase

By | February 3, 2007

Under a rule issued by the US Department of Transportation, baggage liability limitations will soon rise to $3000 per passenger from the current limit of $2800 effective February 28. It applies to any flight using large aircraft and only commuter air carriers are exempt.

Airlines could pay an additional $2.6 million per year as a result of the new regulation. Supplemental insurance is available if passengers believe their luggage is more valuable.
