QANTAS wanted to charge me $950 in excess baggage to fly my bike approx 350km. They eventually relented but still charged me an extra $100. Didn't charge me any extra on the return leg of the journey - wouldn't of wanted to either after causing me to miss my connecting flight after taking 3 hours to go through customs and transfer from international to domestic terminal.

The thing that gets me is I weigh 70kg but pay the same price for my air ticket as someone who weighs 170kg, but if I have a few extra kg in baggage I basically get raped by the airline.
