Pack light to avoid a fight when flying

Dear Heloise: As a flight attendant with a major airline, I advise everyone to pack ligh. Air travel is convenient, safe and fairly easy, but it can be expensive. Fares keep going up, as well as fees for excess weight in your luggage, so please tell your readers to pack only what they know they need on a trip. You can buy anything else you forgot or need when you get to your destination. This will save you money and an argument with the ticket agent when your bag is weighed. — Molly D. in Atlanta
