One of the frustrations about flying is you no longer get to check two bags free when flying internationally in tourist class or coach. Even having a Delta AMEX card that in the states gets you up to 9 bags free, does not give you an extra free bag when you fly across the pond.

Well don’t let that frustrate you anymore. All you have to do now is follow these four simple steps to get the 2nd bag FREE. KLM/ AF now has a program for subscribers to flyingbluegolf.com. So here is what you have to do.

1) sign up at flyingbluegolf.com
2) fly ONLY KLM / AF, CityJet, Brit Air, Regional & Air Europa operated flights
3) use your KLM / AF frequent flyer number in the reservation
4) use a golf bag as your additional piece of luggage

See! (hope you feel the sarcasm by now)  Isn’t that simple. There are a few drawbacks for us Delta flyers, like not earning Skymiles, and not being able to fly any Delta metal planes, and having to pack stuff around your golf clubs – but hey – we are talking about being able to check an extra bag for FREE!

OK so maybe this is not such a great deal. There will be exceptions naturally. It is a great deal if say you are flying on a FREE frequent flyer ticket from Delta on KLM/AF metal. All you have to do is sign up for a Flying Blue number and put that in your reservation rather than your Skymiles number. You are not going to earn miles on a free ticket anyway. And if you are going to play golf, it is nice you can get your sticks over for free.

I wish the rain would stop – all this talk about golf makes me want to play – René
