Actually, for flights from Asia to Europe, or from North America to Europe, KLM has always been one of the cheaper airlines. But yes, they don't exactly have the most comfortable seats or the best in-flight service, I can agree with that. Other than that, they have always been quite all right. In fact, what makes this extra sad is that KLM used to have very generous policies for sports equipment. Just a few years ago, you could bring a bike on KLM international flights for a very modest fee. A couple of years ago, they changed that by jacking up the price for bikes to the point where it is almost cost prohibitive to bring a bike on a KLM flight. And now they will start slapping high fees on oversize bags as wellVinny wrote:Im surprised KLM are still with us, they are such an expensive poor quality airline and now have French attitude as well.
I can understand having to pay a bit extra. But 400€ per roundtrip seems quite excessive... There is no way that they will be able to convince me that the extra labor cost for handling my boardbag is 200€. What is it that they plan to do - assign a team of 10 dedicated baggage handlers to manually carry the bag from the check-in counter all the way to the aircraft?Vinny wrote:If your luggage requires special treatment because it cannot go through automated airport baggage then you have to expect to pay for the privilege.
charge the fat people more - I love it! I'm surprised the airlines haven't thought of it yet. Think of how much $$ US airlines could make. And they can simply say that fat people add to fuel costs. They probably also add to bathroom costs too from eating/shitting all that extra foodNaby wrote: Regarding baggage fees... I always find it irritating that I get charged for one extra pound on my luggage when the guy behind me weights twice as much as I do... Maybe there should be a total weight allowance for both the luggange and the passenger. Seems fair to me
