Dear 100 Hour Board,
Why do the following embargos exist at Delta airlines?

"Excess baggage is not allowed on flights:
to or from Mexico via the Delta Connection® carriers any time during the year; to Guadalajara, Guatemala, Mexico City, Panama City, San Salvador, and San Jose between November 15 and January 15; to San Salvador from July 15 to August 15; or to Santo Domingo permanently."

A: Dear flighty,
I apologize for the delay. I thought that perhaps the explanation would be a bit more interesting, but alas, the only thing Delta had to say was that the embargo is due to aircraft weight restrictions.
