Checked baggage not free on Air Canada
Monday October 20, 2014 MYT

CANADA’S flagship carrier Air Canada has announced that it will be following rivals WestJet and Porter Airlines in adding a fee for the first checked bags on select flights.

As from Sep 18, flyers who book a flight on the carrier’s lowest Economy Class Tango fare for travel Nov 2 and onwards on flights within Canada, and to the Caribbean and Mexico will be charged US$25 (RM81) for their first checked bag.

Air Canada says the move aligns the carrier with North American industry practices. Earlier budget airline WestJet implemented a similar policy, while Toronto-based Porter Airlines introduced the baggage fee this, past spring.

Like WestJet, Air Canada says the change will affect an estimated one in five passengers.

There are exemptions, however: The fee does not apply to economy class tickets purchased using Flex and Latitude fares or to higher class frequent flyers.

What the greedy ones really mean is that they hooked their umbrella crook onto a handle of the gravy train as it passed through and are conning a ride.

Monkey see, monkey do, no intelligence required for executive positions these days.
