Airline Baggage Fee Comparisons

Budget airlines are seen as having cheap affordable flights, and for the most part they. However, they all seem to have fairly complicated baggage rules and conditions, and the horror stories of passengers having to pay high costs for excess baggage or carrying a second bag or for having an ‘out of gauge’ (i.e. a bag that’s larger than the allowance) are commonplace. Regular price airlines would appear to be no better, operating in much the same way.
