I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of this….

As much as we’d all love to see the airlines get rid of all the BS fees that were put into place over the past few months on account of “high oil prices,” I think many of us have come to the realization that the fees are here to stay. Given that, I think CO is onto something in exempting their Chase cardholders from the first checked bag fee.

This is a very smart move on Continental’s part. While there’s no press release on it yet, the internal memo was posted on FlyerTalk and confirmed by CO Insider. By doing this, CO is providing an additional tangible benefit for their cardholders, and at the same time probably getting a few more people to sign up. Win-win, and I’d bet we’ll see several of the legacies following CO’s lead on this.
