If you’re packing your bags and planning to hit the beaches, slow down and check out the latest money-saving travel news.
It has just been announced that five US major airlines are set to participate in a new America’s promise, a way to keep fees for carryon luggage to a minimum. The travel news comes from American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways and JetBlue Airways, all of whom promise not to charge vacationers as the peak summer flying season rapidly approaches.
The promise also comes as news despite the fact that some of those same airlines are expected to report first-quarter losses beginning next week. As you might recall, each of the top five airline companies were among those stung by higher fuel prices and the heavy and widespread snowstorms throughout this past winter.
Let us know how this affects your current travel plans. Are you excited about it? Will this new promise encourage you and your family to travel more this summer from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International or other regional airports?
Or do you plan to save money and still find other methods of transportation like carpooling and riding the trains instead to get to your vacation destinations?
