Alaska Airlines hikes fees

U.S. & World

Add Alaska Airlines to the list of airlines raising baggage fees.

The days of $25 checked baggage fees are gone.

Now Alaska Airlines plans to raise checked bag prices to $30 for the first bag and $40 for the second bag.

All bag fees are each way, per person and will apply to those traveling on or after Dec. 5.

Jet Blue set the trend of higher bag fees when it hiked prices in August. American, Delta and United airlines followed.

Southwest Airlines is the only U.S. carrier offering free checked bags.
