More Airport Scales We Can't Trust
Tucson International is the latest airport to have luggage scale irregularities after New York's Department of Consumer Affairs revealed just before Thanksgiving that scales used by American Airlines at JFK were inaccurate. The Arizona Department of Weights and Measures says all 15 scales used by Delta and United at TUS failed inspection.
While officials didn't say how inaccurate scale readings were, what we do know is that United charges $125 for bags over 50 pounds and Delta asks $25 for items between 50 and 70 pounds.
We'd normally say "You shouldn't be checking bags anyway," but that's hard advice to head if you're packing your skis or snowboards this winter.
