Baggage fees increase on several major airlines


2964247786_572a36f4fe_mSeveral major airlines have increased their baggage fees by as much as 75% in the past week.  Brad Tuttle of Newsweek reported that, “over at Christopher Elliott’s blog, there’s some speculation that Southwest may introduce checked baggage fees of its own. At least the airline is looking into the possibility, with surveys sent to customers asking how they’d respond to various fares (some with checked luggage fees) and to potential changes in the carrier’s frequent flier program.”

As always, JetBlue remains one of the few domestic airlines to offer your first bag checked for FREE.
