I read on another board that there is some sort of scam in some of the DR airports where they try to charge you for excess weight (can you say, take your foot off the scale???). Has anyone had any experience with this?
This is apparently different that the airline that can to charge if your bag is over 50 pounds. Do you know how much that charge is? The American Airlines website only gives the fee for overweight bags for DOMESTIC flights? (it used to be 70 pounds.) I can barely get it to 50 pounds. The funny part is: your CARRYON is allowed 40 pounds. So, guess who’s buying a new carry-on and putting all the heavy stuff in there - ME!)
Appreciate your comments.
