[eDebate] Luggage Fee Tips
Wed Jul 30 00:22:58 CDT 2008
1. The Delta $50 fee for the second bag sounds terrible, but it is only slightly worse than the fees other airlines (United, Americam, etc.) are charging. Most are now charging $15 for the first bag and $25 for the second bag. Delta charges nothing for the first bag and $50 for the second. It sucks, but it is really only 25% more than the others (not 100%).
2. Southwest still gives 2 bags free.
3. MOST IMPORTANT TIP OF ALL: If you are elite on United, everyone on your PNR (that's up to 9 total) gets 2 bags free. Other airlines (American, Delta, etc.) exempt their elites from the bag fees. I do not know if they exempt other passengers on the same PNR. If they do, you can put 6 on a single PNR on American. Not certain about the others.
As far as #3 is concerned, please do not trumpet this to the airlines. It's a loophole you could drive a truck (or at least a few teams' tubs) through and it would be a real shame if they changed the rules.
