I’d bet that most of you have faced the dilemma of being charged extra baggage fees when checking in luggage at the airport.
The big questions is what do you do?
A few times, we were told that a piece of luggage was overweight so we needed to open our bags and move things around. This is definitely annoying but at least we didn’t get stuck paying extra fees.
When one woman, Gel Rodriguez was told that her luggage was 2kg over the max weight allowed by an airline, she got creative.
Yahoo reports, “rather than pay the additional fee, she decided it was best to wear as many of her clothes as she could, putting on layer after layer of pants, shirts and long-sleeved tops.”
Kim and I have joked about doing this many times but have never actually tried it. I tend to find it hot on planes, especially during boarding, so I couldn’t imagine wearing layers of clothing.
Rodriguez posted a photo wearing the extra clothes to Facebook and it ended up being shared over 20,000 times. The post has also received over 1,000 comments.
While her plan to allow her to avoid paying extra fees, Rodriquez doesn’t recommend others follow suit due to all of the clothes making her feel very hot.
Would you try to layer up to avoid paying extra baggage fees on a flight?
