Expedia has a great chart outlining the costs of baggage (first and second bag charges) along with the screw-up rate per airline.
Had I only known this earlier, I would have chosen Hawaiian Airlines for my last flight from MSP to Dulles. Oh, that’s not an option? Dang.
In Delta/Northwest merger news, look forward to a 50% increase in the chances of not finding your bag on the carousel.
And bringing a bike on a Delta flight could cost you $230 EACH WAY if it’s your 3rd bag and over 62″ in diameter. Don’t put any extra crap in that bike box, or – at 50 pounds – it will cost you an ADDITIONAL $80 EACH WAY. iBike claims that Delta is the least bike-friendly airline. With prices like that, I can see why.
