PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A growing trend among airlines is a checked-bag delivery service that lets travelers bypass the luggage carousel and have their bags brought right to their destination.

You still have to pay the checked-bag fees, in addition to the bag delivery fee that starts off at $30 per piece of luggage.

The service is provided by a third-party company in cooperation with the airlines.

But some air travelers we talked with at Philadelphia International Airport say they just wouldn’t trust the service.

“My initial reaction is not having enough confidence in the luggage being delivered on time to the right location, and things of that nature,” said one woman.

One man waiting for a flight said luggage delivery wasn’t too appealing for him:  “I’d like them to focus on concentrating on getting me on a plane — I’m not even worried about my luggage right now,” he said.

US Airways is the latest airline to add the service, which is available at 200 airports across the country and a few international destinations.
