South Bend to New York Flight 2009

I am about to get on my United flight from South Bend to Chicago, and tranfer to a New York City flight. I think I paid about 135 one-way when purchasing with Travelocity.com.

My shampoo and a few other liquids cost me 20 bucks in Baggage fee, I am going to do a complete reworking of my travelers bag strategy for airplanes.

I paid 155 for the plane ticket from South Bend to New York, not what is on the receipt. I am now carrying one less bag because I was not positive SpiritAir.com would allow me check two bags. Hmmm, maybe I can dump the liquids in New York and see if I can avoid the SpiritAir.com luggage fees. At least the were upfront on the fees, while Travelocity.com did not deal with the issue.

I am lighter now, my two bags are carry on size, they do not count laptop bags. I could have carried it on, not paid the luggage fee if I off-loaded all my liquids. The USA airlines have more rules that are not utilized when flying international. Most countries on the planet are small; truly do not have many domestic flights. Therefore the Domestic flights semi treat you same as International flights. I am happy I do not travel domestic in the USA, I am always worried about losing my checked bag. I have had the bags misplaced by USA Airlines about four times in the last 12 years, and never outside. Every luggage problem started with a flight that began in the USA.
