Copa to charge $40 for 2nd Bag (Economy)

https://www.copaair.com/en/web/us/baggage-policy
Economy tickets purchased Feb 1st, 2019 and later will have this new baggage policy. Copa's chart is a bit confusing since this charge only applies to passengers whose travel begins on or after May 1, 2019. Economy flights between North America and Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay will still offer the first two bags at no charge.

That's illegal! There's no such things! They do not need charge 2nd checked bags. Ridiculous! They want to be free 2nd checked bags.

Why would it be illegal? If they need money (more money) then they need to charge for 2nd bags. Fly in Business Class and don't sweat these fees.

I think it was sarcasm.

On the original topic, this should be fine with a lot of customers of CM.

If AV did this then they'd likely get ripped apart.
