Just a few days ago United Airlines announced their new Basic Economy class.  So what does that have to do with baggage?  Well, with basic economy you are limited to one free personal item.  The days of one carry on and one personal item are gone.  Can you imagine traveling to see your family without your stuff?  Sure some of us can pack a change of clothes in a backpack for a quick trip, but we usually take advantage of the two item rule.  An alternative to this is to actually have more stuff on your trip with you.  All you have to do is plan ahead and schedule with XSBaggage to have anything you want (that’s legal of course) shipped directly to wherever you are going.  You can also have it shipped back home for you, with all of the souvenirs and other fun stuff you picked up along they way.

You can see United’s description here.
