Scandinavian Airlines, or SAS (800/221-2350), has simplified and reduced its checked-luggage charges. To qualify for the lower charges, you must purchase your ticket online or from a ticket machine in the airport. 

In addition to one free 23-kilogram (55-pound) bag (32 kilograms, near 71 pounds, in business class), checked-bag costs are now 25 (near $43, a 38% reduction) on domestic flights, 45 (down 31%) for European flights and 75 (down 25%) on intercontinental flights. Restrictions on special baggage, such as golf clubs or skis, have been removed.
