I have been planning all along to not check bags. We have packed lightly and can take a small roll-on and small backpack each on the plane.
However, we do have a long layover and I wanted to take the kids into town. That means we have to check the bags. The site says that the charge is 4.50 Euro per bag. Yikes! That would be over $40.00 for us to check our bags for 3 hours (we are 6 people).
What if I just check the bags through? We are traveling on Air Berlin into Orly. I would save the money and hassle, would have more time on our layover, and I don't need the bags until Paris.
Thoughts? Advice? Experiences?
