    I'm mad too! Alaska Airlines is now charging me for the second bag which they weren't charging for when we booked. They shouldn't be able to just change it like that!

      I wonder if international travelers can have 1 or 2 checked bags for free. Its very unclear.

        Wow, I had to read this thread twice. Charging for the 1st checked bag? Oh no!! Now all carriers are going to follow this. That's amazing, I kind understood about the 2nd bag, but the 1st bag.... wow! That sucks! Thank God we mostly carry on.

          AN AISLE SEAT!!WTF?? When is the madness going to end!

          I wonder what the reasoning is behind that? Why don't they cut their disgusting meals instead.

          ladies call your carrier and make sure whatever fees theyve now added are actually applicable to you --- often if you purchased your ticket by a certain date, the new price hikes for luggage and other things dont apply to you.

            Yeah - I called my TA and he is out to lunch. I just spoke with the other agent. They hadn't even heard about the $15 on AA. Did I mention almost ALL of my guests are flying AA? I have everyone bringing stuff in their checked bags! This totally blows. I'm waiting to see what he says when he calls me back.

            celina, if your tickets are already purchased, none of the fees apply to you
