That's three airlines operating in the eastern triangle to announce this today, or at least technically similar moves... AC, WS, PD.
Kinda funny actually... at YOW there's recently been a new WS ad by gate 18 on about the whole two bags for free thing, only for AC to drop their second bag fee from next week. That ad can't have been there more than a week or so, it used to be for daily flights to Halifax if I'm not mistaken. lol

Sounds like an all out war between the carriers for PAX. Very interesting. Now only if WestJet connected with an international carrier, since most of my travel is on *A and not in NA, then I could switch!

I think it is great news for the traveling public. But, you will never see (1) United States air carrier dropping these fees. They are bring in to much money and they need build up their cash reserves. Besides, rumor has it. CO, DL, NW, AA, all are expected to report a small profit for this quarter because of the fuel prices droping.
