Flying on a budget airline this summer?

If so - check your baggage allowance weights carefully! We have just been to Majorca with Globespan. At Palma airport coming back we were told our bags were 44kg (including the hand luggage) This was 4kgs over the 40kg allowed (20kg per person) As such we were stung with a 28Euros fine. (7Euro per kg - about a fiver)

We werent alone - many of the other folks on the flight were caught as well. Its a great scam for the airline and I say scam because after you get you bags weighed you get to go into Duty Free and pick up as much booze in glass bottles as you want!
