    Maybe I should visit LL Bean and purchase one of these "miracle" bags before this years trip

    Definitely! Go to LLBean.com and search for microfiber rolling pullman. This is a newer model than what I have but the layout is basically the same. And the thing is indestructible!

    I fly with USair and the new policy with them is one checked and one carryone without a fee, however if you are a dividend miles member you can check 2 and carryon one. The weight limit is still 50 and then additional charges for more weight. Hope this helps also....Its funny though, over the years I have started to take less and less...probably because the majority of the day we are in swimsuits and then just get dressed to go out to dinner or partying. Since we have use of a washer and dryer I find I take advantage of that and so I pack less and just re-wear what I have brought........and of course this gives you a reason to shop while there....

    Arrow Baggage Websites

    I just took some time to get all the checked baggage websites for major airlines that travel to Aruba from the US and Canada. USAir was not the only airline that is limiting to one without extra charge, so check your specific airline. Especially when you get close to departure... "Weigh" your options, sometimes it's cheaper to ship things to your destination ahead of your trip (sad but true).

    United
    Delta
    American Airlines
    USAirways/AWA
    JetBlue
    Continental
    Air Canada

    Two suitcase limit

    Just returned today from great week in Aruba. Flew on USAir and as we checked in at the airport, ticket agent informed us that as of May 5th, USAir would only allow one bag per passenger, second bag would be a charge.

    Luggage woes

    My husband and I travelled American Airlines in August 07 and I had one big bag, just made the 50 lb limit if I remember correctly! I way over packed for a week in the sun. We ended up doing laundry while on our honeymoon and re-wearing our favorite things anyway. So the best advice is just to pack the essentials & if you have access to a washer and dryer and don't mind doing it at least once, make it easy on yourself. Have fun!

    UPS delivered our new digital luggage scale yesterday. Great investment considering the fees charged for being over the weight limit.
