I guess that you just had the pleasure of experiencing their Philadelphia baggage police... I completely stop flying them because of it

Haha, have they started making you try to fit them in the little metal frames that are about half the size of an actual overhead bin? Always wondered when that would come.

@OW1, right!? They flank you with their army at Philly before you can even see the start of the security lines!

Good to know.

It was Chicago! And yes D2, those little bins are nowhere near as big as the actual bins. Delta makes their bins bigger and more efficient and AA makes you bring smaller bags and then still checks all of zone 4. Next time my Delta partner flight is cancelled I will absolutely refuse the AA flight (tried to get one of the last 3 seats on Delta and they said no)

Help & suggestions please. I don’t have parents and recently had a kid. I am having trouble in recovery and my daughter is a preemie. I am going back to work in December but can’t send kid to daycare due to health. My aunt who raised me wants to visit and help me out , see places too. With the travel ban going away , can she get a visitor visa so that I have someone reliable in the house along with the new nanny. Are visitor visas possible to get now ? MIL is another option but she is aged.
