Delta Airlines to use technology to track luggage

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Expect to pay more to fly in 2017.

Delta Airlines says it expects airfares to increase as much as 2 percent early this year. Four major airlines reported lower prices for most of 2016.

Now executives at Delta, American, United, and Southwest are all looking for ways to end the decline. 

Together, they control about 80 percent of U.S. air travel.
