New Website Makes Baggage Allowance Info Easy to Attain...

I have to admit, trying to keep up with how many bags each airline allows and on what routes is a nightmare for me! It used to be so simple and easy. Everyone used to get two 70lb bags. I remember as a teenager and college student stuffing and packing every inch of those bags up to 70 lbs, but I do not remember how I ever managed to carry them!

Today, baggage allowances and fees are a complex nightmare for the passenger and BIG money for the airline industry. Trying to determine how many bags, what size, what weight and what the excess fees will be is daunting.

Today, I have news for you. There is a new beta website called IFlyBags ( ) and it allows the passenger to enter their departure city, destination city, airline and then the website gives all of the relevant baggage information. It is pretty extensive and I must admit, for the first time in almost 5 years, I am understanding the baggage thing. Be sure to check it out for your next flight!
