Yeah you read that right. $150 for TWO extra bags! THings have changed. When we flew home from Sweden in 2009 we had 11 pieces of luggage..for free between the 3 of us. When I flew to Sweden in January I paid $50 to have an extra bag with me- bringing home stuff from my grandmothers apartment. And this time we had to pay $150 for two extra bags. I think that if you are paying over $3000 for two tickets- you should be able to bring a little more than one measly 50 lb bag- because let's face it. That will barely hold my shoes (I kid- I did Really good this trip and only brought 4 pairs of shoes total)
