I can see where people “come from” (ie where you work or live from the IP) when they visit the blog. The one post that got the most attention from Delta corp computers was THIS post about how to avoid bag fees. Delta has a bunch of luggage rules and I have blogged about them extensively and you can find out more in E12 in the Essential tab.
But currently, say you are going to fly coast to coast on Delta, and you don’t have a Delta AMEX card so will have to pay for your 1st bag, it will set you back $25. Have you ever thought about the fact that your fee was a bargain? I mean, discounting the $60 minimum fee for using Delta Cargo, just the cost for a 50 lbs bag from coast to coast should cost you $43.50! Even the $35 second bag fee is a bargain at that rate.
Now before your head explodes, I am not saying you should be happy about forking over $60 to check two bags – one way – on Delta. But I hope this makes the point that weight, and the fuel to carry the weight, does have a huge impact on our airline not to mention the environment for the extra pollution we make. So all I am saying is think when you pack. Don’t pack things you will not need as it may cost you more money and could be just wasting gas! – René
