    I would start with the local office and then if no satisfaction, move on to Washington office.

    Just saw this thread - there was a story on the news in the States re malfunctioning luggage scales at the airport. It wasn't any one airline just overall. If you think about it - how often do they calibrate those things. Probably not often sof they're bound to be off. We have a scale here at Costa Linda in the exercise room and every Friday I see people weighing their luggage on it - wonder how accurate IT is?

    On our return flight, the AA scale read 50.6 lbs for our biggest piece and I thought for sure we were gonna get the $50 charge, but he said nothing....I don't know if we got lucky or we were in the "grace zone" so to speak. But to weigh them here at home, I make my wife stand on our home scale with and without the luggage, then do the math

    Balanzza scale

    I have the Balanzza scale. It's accurate to within 1 lb of airline scales.

    One year in Dom Republic, I got stuck with an overweight.
    Next year SAME airport, same airline - again. This time I said I was not overweight (I wasnt) and I refused to pay.

    About a year ago coming back from Cancun. Overweight. when I left home suitcase was under...the same (or less) into that suitcase on the way home...I said I knew that it was NOT overweight and they made a mistake. All of a sudden the American Airlines (or Jet Blue) attendant realized (or I think I Actually NOTICED) that the scale had not been zeroed out from the last customer. Lo and behold.....no overweight.

    Brought home 16 bottles of Amstel Bright.
    Thought we were going to be overweight.
    The digital scale was within one pound on each bag.
    We made sure each bag was no more than 49 pounds.
    Our friends had 4 suitcases, used the digital scale to even out the Balashi in their luggage and they too were underweight thanks to the digital scale!
