Breaking News, Airlines are charging you to mishandle your luggage

Dear Air Travel Consumer, not that things are getting any better with your checked and carry-on luggage, released today in the Washington Post, airline luggage mishandles are up 8 percent in 2007 from 2006, that is 4.4 million bags mishandled in 2007, that is up from 2006, 2005, 2004………. You get the idea and it is not going to get any better.

United Airlines started charging for a second bag to check for 25.00, since then these carriers have followed on their heals, US Airways, Continental, Northwest, and Delta, don’t think it will end there, I would expect to see most carriers following suit very soon.

The airlines made a bold statement “Airline representatives said they would not refund that charge if the bags are mishandled” Not only do you have mishandled bags but now you are paying for the lack of service, frustration, lost time, lost money, etc.

The only option you have is to understand the system, know what you can do to take back some control, and what to do and what your entitled to if you and your luggage don’t arrive to your destination at the same time.  I wrote a book on this exact topic because I know the only way to turn the tide in this growing problem is to offer you my inside knowledge as a veteran of the airline industry and former System Baggage Service Manager for more than 50 cities.  I am also available through my website to offer you free advice as I am here.

I will act as your luggage consultant for free to help you avoid becoming another statistic and what to do if you are another statistic. Lets start our own grass roots movement to turn the tide in your favor. Hope to hear from you soon.
