As of today, Canadian authorities have relaxed the onerous ZERO carry-on bag policy enacted after Christmas Day bombing attempt over Detroit. Passengers on flights bound for the U.S. from Canada can now carry on a single bag, plus a personal item like a purse, briefcase or laptop bag.
This is more or less a return to the rules in force before the Dec 25 incident, but a spokesperson at Transport Canada told The TICKET that travelers should expect tighter enforcement of the one-bag rule.
This is VERY good news for Vancouver Winter Olympics-bound travelers headed north in February.
Dave Marcus says
I heard this too but as of the evening of the 21st travelers were still being forced to check bags.
