For any person who hasn't flown recently

Many airlines have lowered their maximum weight restrictions, such as Frontier, to just 50 lbs. We found this out this morning when going to Yellowstone when Melissa and I expected to save $15 by using 1 checked bag (because each bag checked after 0 costs). However, this put us only 11 lbs. overweight resulting in a whopping $75 overweight “penalty”. What ever happened to the good ole days where airlines didn’t charge for checked baggage?
