Airline Luggage and Baggage Fees and Policies for 2012
I have compiled some baggage fees that the airlines are now imposing. You can use the chart below to give you an idea of what extra fees may be charged to you. Please keep in mind, this is just the information that I found but it is not guaranteed as accurate so you must confirm the fee amount and policies directly with the airline you are using. Also these fees can and may change at any time. I will try to keep it updated but again, no guarantees. BE SURE TO CHECK WITH THE AIRLINE YOU ARE FLYING ON TO CONFIRM THE FEES AND POLICIES!
If you have any other airline fees you would like to add, put then in the comments section of this article and I will add them
