The Climate Commissioner for the Eurpean Union is steadfast in

One expects their homecoming from military duty to be emotional,
and a mostly upbeat experience... until the airline taking you home
shakes you down for big bucks. According to a number of the
soldiers returning home from duty in Afghanistan, Delta decided to
assess over a dozen of the returning war-fighters $200 a pop for
those carrying a Fourth bag... even though the soldiers insist that
their military travel orders allow them to carry four bags for
free. Delta, on the other hand, biting the hand that keeps them
free, says that its policy only allows soldiers to travel with
three bags free of charge.
