From a security stand point, they should have just quietly implement the change and say nothing about it, but the cat is out of the bag now.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come back to bite them in the back side…Especially since that’s my primary carrier for 9/10’s of my life.

You have my deepest sympathy

Under existing rules, passengers flying into the United States must check in their baggage again when connecting to local flights, on top of the luggage inspection already made when boarding from Haneda, Japan's busiest airport.

I would additionally welcome an elimination of the double screening of the passengers themselves. Sending passengers through security when departing Japan and then again when arriving in the U.S. always seems trivial — a massive waste of time and resources.

Govt just love redundancy and inefficiency, especially when private sectors obey them to do same pattern.

Delta is by far the best of the US airlines. That’s not saying much though, compared to most East Asian airlines.

I wonder about passengers like me transferring to Canada from a US airport. In the past, doing the baggage thing in Seattle wasn't a big deal, as the immigration and security folks there are a lot nicer and efficient than their counterparts in (ugh) Vancouver.

My last couple of flights on Delta have been great, by the way.

That's good to know.
