Delta carryon only check in counters at MSP

The US Department of transportation is reporting that airlines raked in more than $1billion in just baggage fees last year. And why not, people don’t seem to be too angry or upset about this. However, two airlines are looking to up the fees even higher.

United Airlines and US Airways will $5 more for checking a bag (a total of $20 for the first bag and $30 for the second). But you can knock off $5 per bag if you check them in online.

It is great that airlines are making more money, but these fees make it more and more difficult to find a few space to place baggage in an overhead-bin due to so many people carrying more on. And for $50 to check two bags one-way…on some flights it might be cheaper just to buy a second seat for your bags!

What! Crazy talk… what people are going to do (what I normally do when I fly anyhow) is try and carry on, oh no! No room, or it’s too big, then they check it for free. However, this will cause delays in take off and just become an annoyance.

You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most individuals will agree
with your website.

Lovely just what I was looking for. Thanks to the author
for taking his time on this one.
