This Month's Tip(s) Baggage Fees.
I have to say this has been the craziest summer when it comes to keeping up with the airlines. Most airlines are charging for checked-in luggage but not in all cases. That is where I needed my secret decoder ring to decipher who was doing what. And just as I programmed my secret decoder ring, an airline would change their policy.
Fortunately my professional association (ASTA) put together a chart of the various airline's baggage fees. I thought I would share it with you. Below is a link to the chart. It is a PDF file so you will need Adobe Reader to open it.

But keep in mind, airlines are changing all the time so always double check with your airline. Do I think some of the airlines will do away with the fees? My opinion is NO, these fees are here to stay.
I have said this before and people laugh at me, but I expect in the future to find the credit card swiper to enter the bathroom on the plane. Can you imagine the money the airlines can make on that one!
Wishing you and your family safe journeys.
