CONTINENTAL AIRLINES Ripped off my sister on fees for 3rd extra bag. SACRAMENTO California

*Consumer Suggestion: oversized bag

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My sister was told , when she brought her ticket in July , theirs a $25.00 fee for additioal bags. Her flight was postponed due to Herricane Ike. When she finally gets to head home. ( Houston Tx. to Shreveport, La.) the airlines (sacramento International) charges her $100.00 for her third bag. I think this is a travisty. She already missed a weeks pay being stuck in Califorina five extra days , not to mention the tragady she has to face at home. (flight conformation #A9LQ6P . Friday sept. 19th 2008 departing at 12: noon.) I think Continental airlines is playing on the tragady of there airline passengers. Also, there is a lack of comunication between the supervisors and the reservationist. both are quoting different prices on the baggages. Where is the company Heart.............or is there a lack of. If there is something that can be done
please advise, Thank you for your undivided attention.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

oversized bag

AUTHOR: Nancy - (U.S.A.)

I went to the Continental web sight and found this.

Customers who travel with checked baggage exceeding 62 linear inches (157 cm) (total length + width + height) will be charged at the rate of $100 per piece. These charges are in addition to any charge assessed for additional or overweight baggage. Baggage measuring more than 115 in (292 cm) (total outside dimensions; length + width + height) will not be accepted as checked baggage.

So I'llb et the $100 dollar charge was for an over sized bag. She had three checked bags?! How much junk did she have with her?
