Is It Time For Southwest Airlines To Charge For Luggage?
- After years of trying not to upset customers, it is finally time for Southwest Airlines to take baggage revenue more seriously. Other low-cost carriers have been ahead for years.
- Southwest is slowly adding international destinations, and rumors suggest Canada is next. Other international carriers have substantial baggage restrictions and fees.
- Flying extra luggage actually costs airlines money in fuel, handling, and occasional damage claims; why shouldn’t revenue be aligned with expenses?
