Baggage Fees

Thanks for sharing this!

Plan to book a seat on Life Airways? You may want to ditch your personal baggage. According to Skoolof Hardnox, spokesperson for the airline, bringing too much luggage on your journey is going to cost you.

“Personal baggage is heavy and impedes liftoff,” says Ms. Hardnox. “We think people should limit what they haul with them.”

To achieve that goal, Life has instituted substantial fees for personal baggage transport. The new charges apply to all emotional baggage, including shoulder chips, suitcases of regrets, trunks of heartbreaks, and monkey backpacks. The heavier your bag, the more you’ll pay.

Ms. Hardnox says the fees are designed to eliminate excess sorting, tagging, and carrying, all of which slow Life down. The airline has conducted studies, which have proven that passengers with fewer emotional bags tend to complain less than those who lumber through the airport dragging the detritus of past excursions.

“To make your travels with Life more enjoyable, we suggest lightening your load before you depart,” Ms. Hardnox says.
