Balanzza travel scale for frequent fliers

The new "Balanzza" travel scale is designed to assist travelers by making pre-flight weight checks less of an exercise in surprise. Even better, the press release for the $25 gadget included this handy chart. I updated the information for JetBlue and added Virgin America. If you've any additional airlines to add, I can easily punch them in. Product Page []

    Actually, that’s one of those mindblowingly useful things that I’ve never realised I’m lacking.

    I tend to pack big toys when I go on holiday (power kites, SCUBA gear, hiking boots) so I’m always left trying to decide which way my bathroom scales’ calibration has drifted.

    It would be funny if this thing weighed ten pounds.

    For Frontier Airlines:

    1st bag checked = free
    2nd bag checked = $25
    50-99 lbs = $75
    Over 62 linear inches (Height+Length+Depth)= $75

    Yes I know that stuff doesn’t fit in your chart right. Also, these prices are effective June 10th. Right now 2 bags can be checked for free. The weights and limitations are the same, except the fee is $50 instead of $75.

    Note that this is actually just a fishing scale – I’ve got one just like it. But it’s not overpriced, so what the heck.

    Fish scales quite nicely fill the gap between small things you need to weigh on a precision balance and big things you can just stick on the bathroom scales.
