News bites: Rough landing

New York’s LaGuardia Airport was closed after a Southwest Airlines plane suffered a rough landing.

Airlines have been charging fees for checking luggage for five years.

A poll shows it may be a challenge to attract riders to Washington, D.C., Metrorail subway extension toward Dulles International Airport when it opens next year.

Attracting riders has not been a problem for Philadelphia’s Southeast Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), which announced a new ridership record recently.
