For the most part international flights don't have a luggage fee for at least the first bag, and some allow two "free" bags. I know a few expatriates who live in the UK and France. They are actually turned off by the hassles with TSA, the visa waiver program, and now by the U.S. planning to charge $10 per person to enter the country if they use the visa waiver. The last item is a proposed law to help promote tourism to the U.S. without using federal funds! "Come to the U.S. That'll be $10 each please."
