AR,

Well I'm glad to hear you support frugality over excess. Personally, I think the extra bag fee should apply to all living souls aboard an aircraft. I mean, if we are talking about paying by weight, then Big Bertha up in first class should be charged double because she weighs more than the six year old in business class. No that can't be right...it would be discrimination....uh, yes, discrimination. Now would it be discriminatory to apply the charge to only the frugal traveler? It's quite possible!

By the way, overseas travelers are allowed 75 lbs. per bag. Don't forget and cheat yourself out of the extra 25 lbs! I think Neiman Marcus or Saks has luggage with a scale built in so you never have to wonder what your bag weighs! Of course the frugal traveler just does the old bathroom scale trick!
