Airline baggage costs!!!

Unread postby Rough2000 on Sun Mar 16, 2008 9:20 pm

I read in the paper today where several airlines are starting to charge for a second checked bag. It will cost $50 round trip for the second bag. While that is bad, one airline charges extra for the third bag, additional charge if it is over 50 lbs, and additional charges if it is over 62 inchs (l + h + w). The total round trip cost for the third bag could be $660.

While we complain about the increased cost for fuel, we're not held captive to what we can bring along in our RV's (within reason). After you consider the costs for airline, hotel, eating out, rental cars, etc, I still believe we have a heck of a bargin with our RV's. Beside, knowing who slept in the bed the night before...priceless. :mrgreen:

Hummm...I never thought of it before but I wonder if I could get away with charging DW a little extra when she packs too much stuff :D
