Pack lightly – – carryon luggage is your friend

Today Delta airlines just announced for travel starting August 1st They will raise the price for a 2nd checked bag to $50.

Hawaiian Airlines decided to follow suit from American, US Airways and charge $15 for first checked bag.

Highway Robbery!

All of these airlines blame the rising cost of fuel for these charges. In some states the cost of gas has gone down a couple cents. (Not by much but better than an increase!) Did you know that airlines pay about a dollar less per gallon for fuel than we do at the pump? (Yea, neither did I) Yea, yea, yea, the aircraft uses a lot more fuel… but IF or WHEN gas becomes “cheap” again… will these fees go away??
I highly doubt it.
