When this video 1st came out it was so over the top I could not help but laugh and I think on some level it is meant to be that way. After all, I know how Delta treats my checked bags and they would not look like this bear bag when it came out on the belt.

But the other day I was checking Delta on Facebook and saw what just made me stop as say WHAAAAAT? Delta is now going to sell BearBags on EBAY (is there no end to where they will sell stuff)? I need not have worried.

They are, as you can see, giving the proceeds to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. WELL DONE DELTA and a brilliant move. Sell a million of them please.

Now the only sad part is how many of these have popped up for resale for hundreds of dollars more than what Delta sold them for (about the cost of a checked bag fee or two on Delta). Then again, maybe those other bags can be looked at as “higher fare class” bears bags than the BASIC bear class bags that Delta sold? 😉 – René

  1. Good on Delta for doing this, but on a side note…that cutesy commercial highly annoys me, knowing how they really handle luggage.

    • @d.sue – I know right – my wife is constantly fixing ours after each trip. and we have duct take just in case always. i would love to get one of the bags, check it once, and do a video!
