Delta Increases Fees for Checked Bags

Delta airlines has joined some of its rivals in raising fees for checked bags. They quietly increased the price of the first and second checked bag by $5.00 each. The first checked bag will now cost $30.00 for flights in North America, the Caribbean and Central America. The second bag is going up to $40.

This price increase is in line with their rivals, JetBlue and United who recently hiked their prices by $5.00 as well.

Obviously this will not affect everyone. You can still get free checked bags with elite status in Delta’s SkyMiles program, by flying first class or if you have a SkyMiles credit card from American Express.
