  1. Interesting concept but the people who do need it the most tend to be the people who board last. They have the least amount of status or fly infrequently and they most likely are not going to pay any extra money for this service. If Delta is doing this strictly to speed up the boarding process and not charge for it it will be interesting to see how it works out. I think it will require a lot of extra labor and I doubt Delta is going to spring for it. It probably makes more sense just to start the boarding process earlier and let people stow their own bags.
