United is the next one up to the podium to raise up their baggage fees. The airline following close in the heels of JetBlue who just raised up some of their key fees.

Unlike JetBlue who raised fees on not only checked baggage and various other fees, United focuses primarily on the checked bag fees. These fees are effective as of September 1st, with no prior announcement or indication that United was raising them.

This seems like United was taking the excuse to raise fees on the heels of JetBlue raising theirs and likely won’t go over well with customers.


Who is next to up their fees? Could it be American or Delta?
