@#!% Airline Fees – Check this list before you go to Curacao

Hey gang,

We travel a lot and even though I put my head in the sand and ignore the fees airlines charge for EVERYTHING……..they really add up.

Click here for a very good list of Booking Fees, Frequent Flyer Fees, Baggage Fees and Inflight Fees from USA Today.

With a little prep you can beat these fees back into submission.

Flying is not as sexy as it once was…… but it beats taking a bus to Curacao.
