Default Delta doubles second-bag fee to $50

ATLANTA - Delta Air Lines Inc., the nation's third-largest carrier, will double its charge for checking a second bag on a domestic flight as part of a set of fee increases to help offset the high cost of fuel.

The Atlanta-based carrier said Tuesday that the changes will apply to customers who purchase a ticket on or after Thursday for travel on or after Aug. 5.

Fee changes include an increase from $25 to $50 to check a second bag for domestic travel. Fees for specialty items that require special handling, such as surfboards or ski equipment, will increase on domestic and international flights, Delta said.

Guys they are here to make money. The price of fuel keeps going up along with everything else, they have to pass on the cost or just close down. Am sure the cruise lines will be next to pass on costs next.

The web-link at bottom provided by the Miami Hearld.

On the way home from your cruise, those duty free bottles my not be so cheap, 1-pound over the weight restriction of (50-lbs) on Delta, will cost $80 and 1-oversized bag is $150 one way!

Look up your airlines charges and fee's, 1st bag, 2nd bag, over-weight bags and over-size bags.

Note: Your carry-on better meet the size limit, the airline can remove it from carry-on and check it in as a second and or extra bag.
