    We are flying to the DR on Continental next May and i was reading on their website that because we booked after May 8,2008 that we are not exempt from having to pay the second bag fee! So we'll have to pay the $25/pp fee for the second bag! So annoying but cheaper than trying to ship it!

    here is the continental website luggage info for people flying with them!

        Yeah, my husband has recently decided that the solution would be to get hired on at an airline, so we get free or discounted travel.

          Oh, don't worry, he came up with this one all on his own. Not to mention he's getting screwed over at his work now anyway.

          i hope this exemption still counts in the next couple of months when we're all booking our flights.
