Use a Digital Luggage Scale

To avoid this situation you must use a digital luggage scale before packing a bag for your flight. Measure the size and check the weight of the luggage for own convenience. After checking the scale you will get to know whether you are going beyond the allowances or not?
Consider Alternate Airports
Do you know that your choice of airports also affects airfares? Yes, this is true. Some major cities have more than one airport; you should always choose the least busy airport. It will save a lot of money of yours. The same applies to the landing airport options. Let us take an example. Lets us say you are booking flights from the USA to India. Probably you will book the flights from the USA to Delhi airport but have you ever thought about the USA to Goa? Never? Well, you will think now because there is a huge difference in the prices of the USA to Delhi and from USA to Goa. The reason behind this is Goa airport is not as busy as Delhi. Don’t bother you can fly from Goa to Delhi on a domestic flight which will cost you way too less.
Sit Above the Wing
Are you bothering about the airplane’s turbulence? Don’t be. Sit over the wing of an airplane. Here you will feel less turbulence. This is near the center of gravity of the plane. You will not feel as much turbulence over here. The window view will not be as good here but you will get rid of turbulence for sure.
