The friendly skies used to be friendlier.
The advertised price is not the final price. The internet doesn’t work over New Mexico. There’s an additional charge for everything except being an inconsiderate schmuck with two giant carry-ons.
Your can’t really blame him, though. Decades of lost luggage have conditioned us all to no longer trust the airlines with our underwear. It’s only fitting we pay an extra $50 per bag, per trip, to roll those dice.
I’d feel better about that if they didn’t offer to gate check the same bag for free, though.
180 of us cruising over New Mexico at 500+mph. It’s loud. The windows are grimy. I wonder if flying is safer than sailing.
I’d Google it, but we’re over New Mexico.
