Just found out some great news for those traveling on Continental Airlines. Continental Airlines do not charge active duty military and their dependants baggage fees on the first two bags if traveling together on leisure travel. From what we understand, the active duty member must be traveling with the family in order for the offer to be valid. Our calls to Continental's PR office have not yet been returned to verify all the details. As soon as we have more information, so will you!
Also, in all but one of our flights to Orlando, we were also extended the courtesy of pre-boarding just for being an active duty family. Nice touch, Continental!
Without baggage fees, Continental is often one of the most affordable airlines - something to consider while traveling this holiday season.
