Air France to charge for second bag check-in
Published on 23/10/2009
"If passengers would like to check a second bag … they may do so for a fee of USD 50 for all flights departing from the US or EUR 50 for all flights departing from Europe" from November 1, Air France said in a statement.
Air France said its decision to impose the charge follows similar moves by Delta, American Airlines, British Airways and Virgin and the fact that only 14 percent of passengers in economy class check a second bag.
The charge would also apply on flights between the United States and Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
