Fees for second bags increased by Delta and United Continental

From Travel Weekly

Delta and United Continental have upped their baggage fees for checking a second bag on transatlantic flights.


The first checked bag on both airlines remains free of charge, but checking a second bag on United Continental now costs $70. Delta now charges $60 for a second bag if checked online and $75 if checked at the airport.


The fee previously had been $50 for both carriers for a second checked bag to Europe.


Delta no longer will carry second checked bags free of charge on flights to Mexico and Central America. The fee is now $30.


Delta also has done away with its discount of $2 or $3 for domestic customers who checked bags online.


The fees remain at $25 for the first bag and $35 for the second, whether checked in online or at the airport.
