Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.

Hi Steve - as long as the airline is letting him bring one pair for free, I think they are being reasonable since they do charge other people for excess baggage. Perhaps he should search for another airline that has a more generous baggage allowance. That the airline should carry spare equipment for free is the same argument that obese people who take up 2 or 3 seats make. Herb
