    The man behind bag fees.- Boston Globe
    They might as well have given his address, my guess is he might get his house toilet-papered at a minimum.

    I wonder how much money he got for that consultation? It's the one fee I don't mind -- all you need to do is be elite or get a credit card and its not a issue. :)

    Most executives use consultants to cover their butts in making risky decisions. This particular consultant should be of no interest to anyone but his clients. But if this story is planted as a distraction from the real news, I can hardly wait to find out. ;)

    Hopefully he negotiated a % of the bag fees collected over x years!!

    Did they really need a consultant to figure this out in 2008??

    They may have needed one to hold their hands as they were hammered by the blowback and catcalls that almost no airline responded to.

    I'm going to wholeheartedly agree with this comment. There are many times that I don't even need a carry-on bag for my travels...and when I do, holding a card at the big three can't hurt. Though if I'm only going to travel on one or two carriers, it doesn't make sense to pay $95/year to save on one or two flights...
