US Airways - Unintended Consequences (Part 2)
It appears that USAir passengers are figuring out how to get around paying for checked bags. On a flight from San Francisco to Phoenix this week there were at least a dozen bags that were gate checked. For those of you who fly a lot please pass along the technique mentioned in my previous post to all your friends and family. USAir is going to eventually figure out that it’s not worth the hassle of charging for bags or they’re going to implement punitive measures for those who try to get around the draconian policy. In the meantime it’s wide open and remember, when they gate check your bag, you pick it up when you step off the plane. So there’s not waiting in baggage claim. USAir could easily get around this (and make me a lot happier) by enforcing a long standing policy regarding carry ons. If the bag is too big to fit in the size tester thingy it doesn’t get on board. No exceptions.
