apparently some airlines in the US have started charging a fee for the first checked-in piece of luggage. the ugly head of rising fuel price has struck again! when will that start in the asia pacific region? air asia only allows 15kg (i paid the price for being ignorant), i'm guessing 5kg when they, too, can't sacrifice profit?
could you just rely on carry-on's? i can't. i'm always the one with the most luggage. celebrities always say travel light, just buy everything when you get to the destination. of course they can afford to do that - they have so much money to spend (which eventually puts an upward spiral effect on fuel price too!).
i imagine if you travel to africa, you would do as the african do? a leave or two?
