Subject: Re: Airline weight allowances

We also just returned from New York and were told by clerk at Continental check-in counter that one of our bags was slightly over 50 lbs. We were not charged extra but advised to be aware of this for future travels. First time this has happened. Northwest didn't weigh our bags at all on return trip. Good advisory for everyone to pack lighter or take another suitcase. We wouldn't have appreciated the extra fees.
