Checking any bags?

Shrewd travelers looking to fly light have an easy solution: First Luggage will pick up your bags at your home or office two days before you depart and then FedEx them anywhere in Europe so they'll get there before you arrive. The service also makes arrangements with your concierge to have them ready at check-in. The price from any U.S. city to Europe is $560 round-trip for one suitcase of any size or weight. Rates between European cities cost $275 to $390. 44-8452/700-670;
