Melody--

No, you miss the point. Of course there's nothing wrong with finding the lowest fares. I'm not suggesting in the least that you should pay full fare or fly first class in order to check a second bag for free. You'd obviously come out on the short end of that deal.

I'm simply pointing out that it's unrealistic to expect to have your cake and eat it too. In other words, if you do get a steeply discounted fare, you don't have much of a case if you complain about the bag charge. That's where this discussion started on the previous thread.

As far as international travel is concerned, many airlines are exempting overseas flights from the second bag rule. This will vary among airlines, so it's best to check. In any event, most airlines aren't instituting the charge until next month, so what happened in the past doesn't count.
