Save Time & Money On Holiday Flights: Carry All With You PDF Print E-mail


If you’re dragging heavy luggage into the airport, expect higher baggage fees this year on major airlines. For a family, it could add hundreds of dollars to your travel costs.

Pack light, take soft-sided carry-ons and wear jackets with many inside and outside pockets for stuffing in everything possible. Check-in areas before your flight will be crowded, and much worse after you land. Jammed in with everyone else waiting,  you’ll spend long minutes for your bags to come down the chute. Unless, of course, you have no checked bags!
