Beat the Fees.

It wasn’t long after I wrote the previous post that things changed. If you still plan to purchase airline tickets for domestic travel within the U.S. and Canada, then make sure to double check your airline’s new policy changes. (See previous post).

US Airways recently announced that passengers booking flights after July 9th will have to pay $15 for the first checked bag, and starting in August, coach passengers will have to pay $2 per non-alcoholic drink. (This includes water).

United quickly followed suit and will now charge $15 for the first checked bag on domestic flights.

Dont’ Despair: This is still one of the best summers to buy an airline ticket to Europe. Just check our airline widget in the left hand column for low fares to the Alps. Today’s Newark to Munich fare was only $590 roundtrip at the time of this writing. (Less than $600 to Munich? Aren’t airlines supposed to be struggling?)
