Air Canada Eliminates Second Bag Fee
In response to decreasing fuel prices, Air Canada is eliminating all second checked-bag charges implemented this spring on North American Tango and Tango Plus fares and they are incorporating fuel surcharges for flights within North America. These initiatives were made possible by the recent relief from all-time high oil prices. Here are the details:
– Effective September 23 2008, the elimination of the $25 fee for second checked bags that was introduced May 15 for Tango and Tango Plus fares within North America.
– Starting September 18 2008, Air Canada is incorporating into its advertised prices the one-way, add-on fuel surcharge that currently ranges between $20 and $60 on domestic and U.S. transborder flights. The company will adjust its published fares to include the total cost of fuel in its advertised base fares. This will provide customers simple, transparent and low fares.
– Starting October 14 2008, Air Canada is simplifying its excess baggage fees by introducing a single $75 fee for travel within North America ($100 international) for overweight and/or oversize pieces. This new policy replaces the standard industry practice of imposing individual fees for each situation. For bags exceeding the free allowance, the excess piece fee will now include any applicable overweight or oversize fees. A 10 per cent discount on excess piece fees is offered when fees are paid while checking-in online or at an airport self service kiosk.
Idol Comes To Disney
An “American Idol” attraction will bring the TV series to life at Walt Disney World in Florida. Located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests will be able to experience auditioning, performing, and getting judged on stage. Guests register in advance to audition in front of a producer. After backstage preparation work including time with a vocal coach and hair/make-up, registered guests will perform live in front of an audience to get scored.
Free Entrance to Walt Disney Parks & Resorts
Disney announced its marketing theme for 2009 will be “What Will You Celebrate?”. Disney is encouraging guests to visit the parks for birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, honeymoons, weddings and other celebratory gatherings. As part of that campaign, Jay Rasulo, chairman of Disney Parks & Resorts, announced that everyone who visits a Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort theme park on their birthday in 2009 can get in free, as Disney Parks embrace the new trend in family travel called Celebration Vacations. The free birthday admission requires a valid ID including proof of birth date.
