One time in the US I arrived at a check-in 5 minutes after they stopped accepting checked luggage for a flight.

And, unsurprisingly, when not checking a bag I also never have a problem and am out of the airport faster than anyone checking bags. Also, the JL Childress Standard/Double Stroller Gate Check Bag features two webbing handles for effortless lifting, reinforced seams for strength and a personal identification box for reassurance. Delta checks strollers and car seats for free either at the curbside, at the ticket counter or at the gate.Some US airlines will gate check carry-on luggage, either when they run out of overhead compartment space or when some bags are too large. I told gate agent I needed my carry on because I'd end up overnighting in Denver and then on to Montrose the next day. It’s possible to take a small bag to fit under the seat in front, if you adhere to the Marie Kondo art of packing. Upon request, the stroller can be delivered to the aircraft door at the connecting city or destination.

As if that wasn't enough that flight too ended up cancelled and I had to spend the night in the Newark airport wirh nothing but clothes I was wearing and my purse. After it fit the gate manager probably did not like my smirk and still insisted the bag be gate checked. This is different from regularly checking your bag, as the process is normally completed at a check-in desk/ticket counter pre-security, rather than at the departure gate before you board your flight. And, from what I've seen, the airlines now have the equipment to print the proper checked luggage tags when doing this bag check at the gate.

I did find it annoying one time when they "hit the limit" right as I reached the ticket taker and required all other bags to be checked. Yes the meaning of those words "gate check" have been strained by the airlines when dealing with mainline aircraft. Ben, you left out the most important trick: I've never seen anyone have to gate or valet check any reasonably sized no-wheels soft duffel bag. The United employee in charge of taking the boarding passes insisted that there was not enough room for my carry-on bag which also contained medication. She now splits her time between Colorado and Paris, ensuring she doesn't have to live without skiing or L'As du Fallafel.

The good news is that gate-checked bags are treated the same as all other checked bags, and this process does not necessarily increase the likelihood of your bag being lost.I fly often for work and the amount of times my flight has taken off late because no one will volunteer to gate check their obviously too large "carry on" suitcase is infuriating. S. companies (thank goodness) deliver gate-checked items to the door of the aircraft, or at the bottom of the stairs if deplaning from the tarmac (outside-the fun way in the rain! Our blue Gate Check Bag for Car Seats has been a go-to travel bag for parents for over a decade…and with good reason. We got to the gate in AMS and I could not believe the sizes of carry ons that people were bringing on board. The bag sat on the tarmac in the rain for 1/2 hour and when I get it back one of the wheels was broken and it was stained with grease.

An accurate aircraft weight is critical to every phase of flight including how much fuel is loaded on the aircraft. Their generous baggage policy allows all passengers, regardless of fare types to check two bags for free. This assumes that you can safely carry the bag yourself (and lift it into the overhead bin), and that you’re not taking up space that would belong to others.

It's always frustrating seeing so many people get away with flagrantly breaking the rules, but your actions means that some other people didn't have to gate check their bags, or stuff their bag rows behind their seat because there was no space left overhead. Gate checking refers to the practice that allows passengers to check in their bags directly at the gate. I've been on flights where it is announced that overhead bin space is limited and anyone who has a bag they would like to "gate-check" is invited to . For example, some airlines have ridiculously low carry-on allowances, especially in terms of the weight requirement. The bag easily covers most umbrella strollers, featuring two webbing handles for effortless lifting and reinforced seams for strength and a personal ID box for even easier identification when travelling.
