Travel Info: Be a One Bag Traveler!

Reasons why you should pack lightly, tightly, and rightly.

1. The more bags you have, the more chance you have at losing one!
2. Get through the airport quicker.
3. Don't get stuck at baggage claim.
4. Did I mention you could lose one? or have it stolen!
5. Airlines will now charge for checking that second bag!

Check out this article from the New York Times.
The new fee of $25 for a second bag is being levied by Continental, Delta, Northwest, United and US Airways. The low-fare carrier AirTran has announced that it will charge $10 for a second checked bag. Airlines have long levied fees for checking a third bag. Some carriers have recently increased those as well, and the fees on the major carriers now run as high as $100.
Ew. Taxes, fees and surcharges- oh my!

    Traveling has become a huge hassle (I sit here writing this comment in the Tulsa Airport awaiting my delayed flight :-) )

    Airlines are charging more and more and offering less and less. Yay!

  2. This is definitely reason to try to pack a little more "smartly."
