United Airlines To Charge For Use Of Overhead Bins, Philippine Air Lines To Ban Dried Fish In Cabin

IMG_7454.JPGSAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – United Airlines just announced a new ticket option called “Basic Economy,” banning the use of overhead bins for luggage.

With the new policy, passengers in the main cabin are stuck with paying for a checked bag, or paying for a more expensive ticket to bring it  on board as a carry-on.

Across the Pacific Ocean, Philippine Air Lines (PAL) also announced that it will no longer allow passengers to bring dried  fish as carry-on items.  The Philippines’ flag carrier said that the new rule is in response to a customer survey in which many passengers, especially non-Filipinos, have complained about the aroma of dried fish that Filipinos bring on board.

So if you’re planning to bring dried fish as a gift to your relatives in the U.S. or other countries, be prepared to pack them as checked-in luggage.

Or fly first class on United!
