Have you found since the new baggage regulations have gone into effect that, they are really being vigilent in following through with charges for overweight baggage?
I know, years ago, we were quite overweight on one bag, and because the man would have had to take the bag inside himself, he let it go. I had my wallet out at the ready, but, his laziness saved us money..I know things would/should, be much tighter now.

I had to buy an extra suitcase in Savanah GA once because both our bags were overweight < 5lbs. Cheaper than the overweight bag fee and before per bag changes.

When I do fly, which isn't often, I pack a collapsible nylon duffel in an outside pocket of my suitcase. That way, if I am over, it is quick and simple to move some things to the duffel and stay under the limit. The duffel isn't very big, but it has earned its keep many times over.
