I called American Airlines this morning, just to verify how much baggage we can bring, and sure enough the weight limit is 50 lbs. I remember the good old days when it was 70 lbs...O how nice that would be. I was already pretty sure it was only 50 lbs, but I had hope, which was very quickly dashed to pieces.
This is a really good chance for us to simplify, so I was thinking the 50 lbs per bag wouldn't be a problem. However, we keep having to add items to the list, so the weight keeps going up and up and up.... Guess we aren't taking the PS3.
