Aries, part of the Patriot Act allows you to ship wine you buy in California (or anywhere) back to yourself in any state. You have to purchase the wine in person and set up the shipment, as well as get the shipment, but you can do it.
Originally posted by ArieS: So does that mean I can bring back a 12 bottles styro AND my luggage? Joe says 50 pounds per checked bag, but how many bag do they allow before charging you extra?
tlily, I'm not interested into shipping it or that's something I could do from my home. It's more about coming back with it.
ArieS, it depends on your airline so it's best to call their customer service line before your flight to verify but in general on most airlines you can check 2 bags and carry on 1 bag per flight. Each check bag can weigh up to 50 lbs each. So if you're going to NorCal for a long weekend and can make due with a carry on for all of your clothes then you can check two styrofoam shippers with 12 bottles each as long as each is 50 lbs or less. If you check any more than that each additional bag will cost you a charge, typically $80.00 or even higher. Once again, you need to verify the details with your airline.
Mr Ass, which airline have you flown recently that charged for a second bag? That sucks.
FYI...American, the last hold out incredibly enough, has decided to start charging $25.00 for the 2nd checked bag in May. The fee is waived for various things such as if you're flying in first class, paid for a full coach fair, are a gold level or higher advantage member and such.
The hits just keep coming. American Airlines just announced they will start charging $15.00 each way FOR THE FIRST CHECKED BAG. That means if you decide to go anywhere and check two bags each way it'll cost you $80.00 round trip.
They do this while flight attendants bitch about too many carry on bags.
