Soldiers Fight Airline Bag Fees and Win [VIDEO]

Soldiers returning from Afghanistan are fighting airline fees.  The members of the US Army were charged $200 in extra bag fees on the final leg of their trip home to a base in Louisiana.  The soldiers were allowed to check 3 bags for free but had to pay the extra fee for the extra bag.  The men were so upset about the charges, they made a video and posted it on YouTube.  Hours after the video went viral the airline changed its policy, allowing anyone in the military flying coach to check 4 bags at no extra cost.  Several other airlines matched the offer.

I think anyone returning from putting their lives on the line for our freedom should be allowed to fly with as many bags as they have.  I’m sure it wasn’t the welcome home, these soldiers were expecting.  Some are upset the soldiers took their fight to the internet instead of trying to resolve it quietly.  What do you think?
