    Sounds like it might be cheaper to ship your luggage overseas now.

    Hey that was pretty speedy! You got in there and changed the subject line of this thread so it wasn't so misleading before I could finish writing my post :) :) :)

    But yeah, it is SECOND bag and it is for overseas flights.

    When its on second and third bags to me it actually makes sense to charge people extra: it just gets them to pack smarter or if they are unwilling to do so then to pay for it.

    I can still say my best example is when I was at the airport going to Las Vegas with my wife and we ran in to a former coworker of mine in line for the same flight: We were going for 6 nights and had one suitcase, one carry on bag plus my laptop case and my wife had a pillow... they were going for 3 nights and had two suitcases, a garment bag, a laptop case and three carry on bags.

    For the people that are too stupid to think ahead and have to pack along every stitch of clothing they own and they'll work it out when they get there... they should be made to pay extra.
