DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Could there ever really be a ban on carry-on bags when you fly?
According to a report by National Public Radio, a ban on carry-on luggage was discussed by U.S. counter-terrorism officials.
A TSA spokesperson told CBS 11 News it’s “not anticipating any further changes in the carry-on bag policies.”
The spokesperson said as always TSA will make adjustments when necessary to meet the ever-evolving terror threat.
Travelers and industry experts alike say a ban on carry-on bags would be hard to imagine.
“I know that they believe there’s a threat,” said FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney. “The question is what’s the solution to the threat.”
Seaney said a ban on carry-ons would financially be devastating to the airline industry.
He said, “Airlines know this will depress people from buying tickets.”
