Can anyone who has flown Northwest Airlines recently tell me if they are stringent on the carryon policy?
I can see from their site that they allow bags with a linear dimension of 45 inches (115 cm) and not more than 40 pounds.
But I know how some airlines get some days. You think you're doing the right thing and they adjust the rules that day.
My wife and I are traveling to Paris in April, we each travel lite with the small, wheeled suitcases. Should we expect that they demand the bags be checked?
