Says New Fee Gives Pax "More Cost-Saving Options"
Mesa's Air Group's
money-losing go! Airlines announced this week
that starting August 10, 2008 it will begin charging a
first-checked-bag service charge of $10 on all of its interisland
flights, to offset the increases in the cost of fuel and, to quote
a Mesa release, "to give go! passengers more cost-saving
With the introduction of the first-checked-bag fee, go! has
reduced its second-checked-bag fee to $17, from the $25 previously
announced last month. In other words, passengers planning to check
two bags anyway will now pay $2 more than before (in this day
and age, we suppose "cost-saving options" cost money, too --
The second-checked-bag fee applies to passengers who purchased
tickets on or after June 25, 2008 for travel on or after July 15,
"Fuel costs have more than doubled since we first entered the
Hawaiian market," said Jonathan Ornstein, Mesa Air Group Chairman
and CEO. "In this extremely challenging environment we remain
committed to providing the best interisland service at the lowest
possible cost and are working to provide options instead of raising
overall cost of travel," he continued.
The $10 first-checked-bag fee takes effect for travel that
begins on August 10, 2008. Customers exempt from paying the fee
include passengers who purchased their tickets for travel prior to
July 10, corporate fliers, and seven or fewer people traveling on
the same reservation as someone with exempt status.
Car seats, carriers and strollers are also exempt, as are
wheelchairs and other personal assistive devices.
