    I was just watching the morning news. The topic was that baggage fees are increasing this summer. It showed a man - at the large trash can - who was going through his check thru - it was going to cost $65 for his baggage. He was sorting his belogings, and stated that since his ticket was already $165, and it was going to cost another $65 for luggage, he didn't need this sweatshirt, or these pants and definitely not this quilt. QUILT!!!! HE THREW THE QUILT IN THE TRASH! Agggggghhhhhhhh................

    Sad. You can take a cary on blanket for free. But yes it is rediculous how they get about taking lugage.

    I was hoping the camerman and/or reporter pulled it out after he left. It didn't look like a cheapie to me...we quilters can spot those!!! It looked more like a 'gift' quilt....you all know what I mean!!!

    Yeah and it was all over the news this morning that the airlines have made over 6 billion in extra bagage fees. Is it a wonder some people would rather throw things in the trash. Sad.

    Unless it's an emergency have to get there situation, I don't see how $65 more would be a deal breaker to fly or not.
