JetBlue kicked off the latest round of baggage fee hikes by raising the cost of the 1st checked bag to $30 and the 2nd checked bag to $40.
Air Canada went up to the $30 on the 1st checked bag and $50 for the 2nd checked bag.
And now United will match JetBlue’s new higher fees for tickets within the US, Canada, and Caribbean.
The new fees apply for tickets bought today, if you already have tickets then you won’t pay the higher fees.
JetBlue still retains the advantage for customers as they don’t have basic economy fares and they offer free speedy WiFi, live TV, and free snacks, but we’ll see how long those perks last…
If you have United elite status or a United credit card you’ll still get the same free baggage as before. Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other travel cards!
American and Delta haven’t yet matched but they will soon.
