Sens. Benjamin Cardin, D-Md., and Mary Landrieu, D-La., have introduced legislation that would prohibit airlines from charging passengers for their carry-on bags. The proposal would prohibit fees for carry-on items deemed essential to passenger health, work and safety. "Only one airline has announced plans to charge for carry- on item fees, but we cannot allow these floodgates to open," Landrieu said.
