Breaking the bank
OK, so it's been more than a few years since I've been to Hawaii to visit Paul and Lisa. Actually Heather was pregnant with my grandson Adam last time we were there with the five kids and he's in middle school now.The family went about six years ago but Bill and I stayed home with Aunt Winnie. But really guys the airlines are out of control with the fee's. First off, when you pick the seats on the plane, if you want more leg room you have to pay $59.00 for it; you are actually pay for air. I was talking to Denise my sister in law in NY and she mentioned how she was checking her and Gerard's baggage but the kids were carrying on because of the fees on Delta. So I checked with United and they charge $35.00 per bag and I believe if you violate the 50 lb limit the hit you with a $100 fee. Believe me when I tell you we paid plenty for the tickets to begin with, talk about breaking the bank. But it got me to wondering when is it that they'll start charging the passengers to use the bathrooms on the planes?? Really.....
