I was surprised at the cost of checking two bags - $84 !!! That is just too much. Especially when people are asked at the gate to check their bags...free of charge...because the overhead bins are going to be filled. I am sick of checking my bags (which are both carry on size), paying all this extra money to essentially make space for others and receiving no “perks” for doing this. The reason I check both my carry on bags is because I always have a connecting flight, I am 73 years old and I don’t want to be dragging two bags around the airport. I wish their was a solution to this. It looks like I should take my bags to the gate and then ask for the bags to be checked...free of charge as so many people are doing. Unfair.
