US$50 For Checking a Second Bag on International Flights
Delta Air LInes quietly announced yesterday that there will be a $50 2nd Checked Bag Fee on Intl Flights Effective 1 July.
As one can imagine, there is already a long discussion regarding this new fee amongst FlyerTalk members. Will it affect frequent fliers with elite status? Will it affect those passengers who purchased international tickets before this announcement but be on an international flight after this fee is already in effect? Will other airlines follow suit? Is this a good business decision by Delta Air Lines, especially in the middle of a bad worldwide economy?
What are your thoughts?
