Default Suitcases need weight watchers!

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.

Trip, how many places did you post this question?

I have found that they are enforcing the limits. It is amusing watching people repacking their suitcases at the airport instead of paying $25.

For the most part I'm finding these weight limits on baggage are being enforced religiously. We have seen a couple that they let slide through. I'm learning somewhat to pack a little differently. This last cruise I didn't go over. That was a first, and I was pleasantly surprised. :o



Marc -

It is more than $25 for a bag over 50 pounds.
