Avoiding airline baggage fees

Hey Travel Prof: How do I avoid airline baggage fees?

That's simple-take a nakation! That’s as in naked. With no bulky clothes, packing for a naked holiday is simple. Just remember ample supplies of sun block!!

The only other ways that I’ve found are to fly airlines like Southwest that do not have baggage fees. Another is to get an airline affinity credit card. Armed with this card I got one free bag on Continental.
