Apr 13th 2010 6:09PM Airlines are making money by charging luggage bags. Since the time air travel started it has never been like that, but recently in last 2 years airlines have started charging money for baggages. This is completely ridicules. They were going to bankcrupt in 2007 (when financial institutes started falling down) that's why they thought to start charging money and teh reason being increase in gas prices. If you guys remember there was increase in gas prices (around $140 per barrel) in mid 2008. It was created by such companies like airlines, by their CEOs. They created a reason to charge for bags becasue gas is expensive. Right after few months the gas prices came down ($56 per barrel). But what happned to bags charges. Did they withdrew the bags charges? NO. But we all are quiet and not protesting. I don't know why. I guess US citizens have so much money that they don't bother.
