AirTran Raises Checked Bag Fee
That's an increase of $5. The upped fee applies to coach-class reservations, made on or after August 17.
JetBlue and Southwest still allow a first checked bag for free.
The increased AirTran fee is still less than that of rival Delta ($23 online and $25 at the airport), however. And among low-cost carriers, AirTran is still charging less for a first checked bag than Virgin America ($25) and Spirit ($25 to $30).
AirTran will continue to charge $25 for a second bag, and those in business class and elite frequent fliers can continue to check two bags at no charge.
