Airlines are faced with growing direct costs and restricted growth. Baggage touches both pain points; representing a direct cost in terms of fuel, landing duties and handling costs & an indirect cost as a barrier to turning around more planes within the limited daily slots. To combat the cost of handling baggage, airlines are seeking to reduce the amount checked whilst charging significantly more for that which is.
The CEO of Europe's largest low cost airline has stated he will “price luggage out of the hold”. Baggage however is not only a problem for European low cost airlines; in the last decade the revenue achieved from baggage fees in the USA has grown from $400M to $4B.
One journalist described the modern traveller as being fleeced like sheep and herded like cattle, checked baggage fees are growing, hand luggage only flights are coming and baggage allowances are falling; despite this over 1.5 billion flights will be taken in 2014.
SendMyBag is not a “luggage concierge” service for the wealthy; they endeavour to be a mass market solution which will disrupt the airline industry by revolutionising the courier industry.
