Untours Cafe

Today's Wall Street Journal Online has an article that could negatively impact Untourists! Beginning May 5th,
United and US Airways will only allow ONE checked baggage per traveller! A 2nd checked bag will cost $50
per round trip. Virgin Atlantic will also only allow one checked bag.

American, Continental, Delta, Northwest, and Southwest will continue to allow 2 checked bags, at least for the
foreseeable future.

A third bag or one that is oversize or overweight (50 pounds or more) will incur very large extra fees. It will be
important to check with the airline you plan to fly to learn exactly what these changes may mean for you.

Fortunately, elite-level frequent flyers are exempt from these new charges.

Actually, my observation is that most people take way more "stuff" with them anyway. Maybe this will help cut that down! Speaking as one who always traveled to Europe with only a carry on and a small day pack anyway until the severe restrictions after 9/11, I am coming from a different perspective than many travelers. Some times when I see the enormous bags people are traveling with, I cannot imagine what they have stuffed into them!! I do understand that business travel presents attire issues that tourist travel does not.
