E’ffing rat bastards.
Like everyone I try to get the cheapest flights I can get… why should I pay a premium to be abused and tortured?
So I check in for the 3:15 to Phoenix en route to Portland planning to check one bag which I seldom do… but I’m carrying presents.
“That will be $26,” says Alejandero.
For one bag about 30 pounds?
It’s not his fault, I imagine he gets tired of hearing the hurrumphs about “airway robbery”…. besides, I’m on a lot of meds and I just don’t care much anymore.
Yeah, yeah, I’m sure that somewhere on their website US air proclaims its bag fee… but they sure as hell don’t mention that when you’re processing the reservation.
If it’s oh-so necessary in these “hard times” to charge a ransom for your clothes, then how does Southwest fly bags for free?
I”d steal more miniature bags of peanuts, but I doubt US Air has any.
They didn’t…. but they had room for $7 drinks.
Valley of the Sun on time… 45 minutes till wheels up to Portland.
Lots of soldiers and Air Force… good-looking, bright young kids… love to talk with these Real Americans.
Sadly, the storm on the Eastern seaboard screwed at lot of Christmas and leave plans as many flights were CX’ed at DFW.
If Phoenix, Atlanta and DIA can have free WiFi… what can’t all airports.
Wait….. then they’d just charge more for the bags.
I don’t remember this welcome in 1969… the kid should cheer up a bit.
