US$309.16 to Check an Extra Piece of Luggage
Imagine the surprise of FlyerTalk member Flyin’Mom when she checked an extra piece of baggage on a KLM itinerary from Helsinki to Dallas-Fort Worth via Amsterdam and Minneapolis/St. Paul when, to her surprise, KLM charged $309.16 to check an extra bag.
She expected to pay extra — perhaps US$80.00 — for her extra piece of baggage, but not hundreds of dollars extra.
