Think of it as an incentive to loose weightGUYONABUFFALO:242339 said:If I owned an airline I would charge by the pound. Passengers weight + Baggage weight determines the price. Weight needs lift, lift produces drag and that means $$$$$$. I would call it Weight Watchers Airlines
If they'd stop charging for the first checked bag (and stop losing luggage), that would stop. It is a problem THEY created.I think more airlines should carry for carry-ons, particularly the large ones. If you can throw it under the seat who cares, but damn there's not much more annoying than being delayed 15 minutes because morons are fighting up and down the aisles try to jam their giant sized wheeled carry-ons in the overhead bins.
