I USUALLY TRAVEL BY AIR AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR. THIS YEAR I DID NOT TOO EXPENSIVE. I DON'T HAVE TO GO SO I STAY HOME. OR GO BY CAR. NOT MUCH CHEAPER, BUT AT LEAST I CAN GO AND COME WHEN I GET READY.
If you cant afford to fly because of this add on then you shouldnt be going anywhere to start with. Skip your fastfood lunch for a few days to cover it.
It's the Federal shakedown and chaos of not being able to park out front or meet your party at the gate anymore that keeps me from wanting to fly.
In my forty plus years on this planet, I have taken two trips by airplane. So, no, that baggage fees do not affect my travel plans.
