Delta Sky Magazine rejects ad telling passengers how to avoid baggage fees


Carry-on baggage fees are one of the most outrageous fees that traveler's get hit with these days. It's no surprise then that a number of work-arounds to this fee have been developed, including shipping your luggage or wearing your carry-on in the form of a ScotteVest jacket.

Speaking of the ScotteVest, when you sell a product aimed at travelers, one of the best places to advertise is through the airline's in-air magazine. But when ScotteVest tried to place a full page ad about, "The Most Stylish Way to Beat the System" that helps wearers "Avoid Extra Baggage Fees," the Delta Sky Magazine rejected the ad.

The rejection came as a surprise to ScotteVest CEO Scott Jordan, since the clothing company has been featured in Delta Sky Magazine, SkyMall and other airline publications in the past. Watch Jordan's video response to the rejection:
