Transparency in Action
Consumer Baggage Fees & Allowances
iflybags.com is yet another example of how technological innovation is improving transparency in air travel. Farelogix created iflybags to help solve the issue of growing consumer frustration and confusion over the vast array of checked baggage fees.
By utilizing industry-standard data from the Airline Tariff Publishing Company, coupled with a patent-pending rules and pricing engine, iflybags evaluates, optimizes, and presents a specific fee quote based on airline-specific itineraries, traveler information (including frequent flyer status), and the number and weight of bags.
The screenshots below illustrate how iflybags.com works, or you can visit www.iflybags.com to see it in action.
