The American Airlines Golf Club Bag Ripoff Charge
I met a golfer yesterday who flew in from out of state and he told me that American Airlines has a sneaky tactic to extract more money from you. He told me that when he checked in his golf bag, he was asked if there are clothes in it. He answered yes, given that he has rain gear and other layers in it, and they screwed him over by charging him an extra $200 for carrying clothes in his golf bag.
My question is this. Is this exclusively an American Airlines charge, or does this apply to all airlines?
