Robbery at 30,000 ft

Richard Branson doing a poor bird impression
Just got off a flight from Perth to Brisbane... and I am still smarting from paying $360 for excess luggage for a box of workbooks for my seminar today. That was $15 a kilo...

I know I should just shut up and cop it BUT the rates change on Wednesday to the Qantas system of per piece... and it will be just $40 excess if I do it on line or $80 at the airport. Can you imagine how much Virgin Blue raked in for all those years and Qantas when it followed their lead...

Oh well... rest of trip is on Qantas... I just wonder why do they cancel the Perth to Brisbane Red Eye some Sundays??

  1. I use a big F word to describe the airlines that charge this way. They should be boycotted if at all possible. After all the customer is their life-blood & should not be ripped off.

  3. I just paid $100 on Air France for excess luggage as I was carrying Listerine teeth whitening for relatives in Paris. Can you imagine how expensive this Listerine was?
