Airline scam

It’s got to be some sort of scam that I can fly to Europe, at no extra cost, with two checked bags, a laptop bag, and a personal item (camera gear), no problemo, but then when I turn around and fly home with exactly the same things on the same airline, it’s 50 euros for the second checked bag, and they hassle me about the camera gear. “Look, you flew all this stuff over here, no problem! Why isn’t it the same going back? What about that lady over there, her maximum-overhead-bin-sized roll-on and backpack-sized purse are bigger and heavier than my stuff!”

And then it’s welcome to the secondary pat down line…
