One of BOTB’s favorite discount carriers JetBlue has added bag check Fees. Since its inception this low cost carrier with great pricing, and GREAT amenities…..Think satellite TV on seat backs & leather chairs in economy class; is now following the lead of many major carriers.
However, travelers will pay less by planning in advance. Those booking the cheapest tickets will pay $20 each way if they check in online or at a kiosk. The fee will then jump to $25 if they go to the counter. And, a new fare class that costs about $15 extra each way would include one free bag (This seems like the way to go, for the cheapest fees). The fees for a second checked bag and reservation changes are being lowered.
