Another airline ripoff report

July 30th, 2008 at 06:23 pm

Wow...Everyone seems to try and "separate" us from our hard-earned money these days. Today while reading the online newspaper, I read that Delta airlines decided to raise the price of a second carry on bag. They had already put a price tag of $25 for the second carry on bag a few months ago, but now they have raised it to $50 per second bag each way on the trip.

That's $100 for a round trip ticket; just to carry an extra bag. Flying prices have already gone through the roof, but now you have to get a loan to carry an additional bag...Geez!

Thank God my family is vacationing closer to home these days. Will all the new fees, charges, and sur-charges affect the way you travel? What do you think?

    The real issue is the price of jet fuel and where to cover the additional cost. They are basically stuck with not being able to raise the ticket price. So, they have to come up with the money in more creative ways.

    I think once the jet feul prices fall, you'll see some of the fees being reduced or go away.
