Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lenghty response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
Today’s question is:
How do you feel about American Airlines’ new policy for charging passengers $15 for their first checked bag?
I think it’s an outrage. All this means is that passengers will now bring on more and bigger carry-on bags when boarding. There is currently a two bag limit per passenger but I have still yet to see anyone enforce it. So, if you’re traveling this Summer, make sure you board as soon as possible to ensure an overhead storage space!
Comment Spotlight from Jenn of Inner Ramblings: Just charge us more for the ticket, for crying out loud. We know gas is sky-high (ohh, sorry for the pun!) I think the majority of people know they’d have to pay more for a ticket. I dislike it when people find “cute�? ways to recover the money they’re losing- just charge it straight up!
