More Airline Ridiculousness

Last week I complained that the fee for bringing a pet on a plane with you was unreasonably high. I think Emily pointed out that children under the age of two can fly on planes all day long with no fee whatsoever. Something else I didn’t realize is that most major airlines are now charging for checking a single bag.

Please enjoy this handy table, and remember to factor in the extra fees when buying your ticket. All prices are for coach class (sometimes fees are waived for business and first class). And let me know if you notice any inaccuracies.

Airline In-cabin pet Child under 2 years old First checked bag Second checked bag

Continental $125 Free if sitting on parent’s lap $15 $25
Delta $125 Free if sitting on parent’s lap $15 $25
JetBlue $100 Free if sitting on parent’s lap Free $20
Northwest $150 Free if sitting on parent’s lap $15 $25
Southwest $75 Free if sitting on parent’s lap Free Free
United $175 Free if sitting on parent’s lap $15 $25
US Airways $100 Free if sitting on parent’s lap $15 $25
Virgin America $50 Free if sitting on parent’s lap Free $25

Edit: I discovered this.
