It is now going to cost us over $400 before we even take off from Logan Airport in Boston. Flying on USAir, they are charging a crazy amount of money for checked luggage. I can understand them charging a fee, but unless you pack everything into your backpack and take is as carry on you are in trouble. I have my wife and two daughters travelling to Aruba and every year we try to take only what we need. But you would rather have too much than not enough especially since we are there for two weeks. Plus to cut down on grocery shopping, we take one suitcase of food, to stock the kitchen at our timeshare.
