In a world where air travel is seeing a tightening of the baggage belt, travellers are considering their options … and if they’re not … they should be.
Did you know that in 2012 airlines earned $6 BILLION in fees for everything from switched and cancelled flights to baggage?!?
Last week on Shark Tank “LugLess” was on the block for bidding. None of the sharks took the bait, but the company caught our attention and we thought we’d share the concept with you.
These days most travellers are incurring baggage costs of some sort. Whether it’s oversized, overweight or not included, we’ve found it’s pretty rare to escape extra fees of some sort unless you’re travelling internationally, have a bag included and pack smart. With airlines cracking down on baggage weights and sizes, travellers are left with few options for getting their gear to their destination. You either put up, shut up and pay the fees, or stuff as much as you can in your carry on. Well, with the growing sizes of carry-on luggage and crazy people trying to stuff too much in the over-head compartments, we’re no doubt going to see a change in what the airlines accept on board again (some airlines are already charging $45-100 for a carry-on!). So what will you do?
