One of my favorite airlines, Alaska Airlines, is raising baggage fees effective October 30th, 2013. The current fee is $20.00 per bag if purchasing a coach/economy ticket. The increase is in par with the rates United, or Delta charges, so I guess it’s not bad…but a fee is a fee. I’m not happy about it, and I have expressed my discontent on their Facebook page and through Twitter. If you are flying first class, there is no fee and your checked luggage goes under the belly at no cost to you. This includes a paid first class ticket or an award ticket with miles What’s nice of them is if you are flying wholly within the state of Alaska, there is no luggage fee. I wonder if Hawaiian Airlines does that, if you are flying intra-Hawaii. See the chart below for specifics. Happy Travels!
