JFK Baggage Malfunction Reminds Us: Aren't Baggage Fees Fun?

That second checked bag better be full of $100 bills or at least cocaine, because you're gonna need it with these new extra fees announced today.

Less than 3 months after introducing the first extra fees for a second checked bag, Delta airlines has resorted to doubling said fee. It will now cost you at least $50 to bring that second bag with you.

But oh no, that's not all. Check out some of these other significant increases:

1. The cost of checking a 3rd, 4th, or 5th bag will raise from $80 to $125 apiece.

2. Up to 3 bags are still allowed free of additional charge to first class and frequent flier members. However, a coach traveler going overseas will now pay $150 for a third checked bag.
