Aer Lingus / Axcess weight charge

On December 11, 2008, I was returning to the united states from Bucuresti, Romania at the Otopeni airport. I was given a slip from Aer Lingus which showed the charges for excess weight on baggage. When I went to board, the airlines charges me far more than what I was told by aer lingus. I contacted the aer lingus representative at that time and had them talk to the
attendent who was boarding us, but I still had to pay a huge amount which I feel was not right according to the information given to me from Aer Lingus. I am requesting a refund due to the wrong information given from your representative.
the following information is details of the charges.
According to your excess baggage slip,
36K-46k is 40 er
47K-64K is 80 er

Aer lingus baggage charge tick# 0654190 was 240 er for 24K
ticket # 0654189 was 260 er for 26K
I should have only paid 80 er total according to your prices listed on the excess baggage slip form. ( weight listed above)

Please refund the difference to me ASAP and contact me if any furter information is needed.

Thank you
George Apostu

    Air Lingus really need to make it clear on the PRINTED BOARDING PASS that paying extra for a second hold luggage does not mean you get extra weight. I had the same problem Malaga to London on EI903. The check in staff were friendly and I had my parents nearby but it was a very stressful experience to have to get rid of weight.
