Now that American Airlines has announced that it will begin charging most domestic passengers $15 to check their first bag, it’s a fair bet other major airlines will do the same.
Travelers are pissed off about this move, but it just seems inevitable that everyone will soon pay to check their bags at the airport.
But maybe not. Consider this: Southwest Airlines, which allows travelers to check two items for free, sent out a press release Thursday reaffirming that the airline has no plans to change its checked baggage policy.
The release ends: “We look forward to seeing you on board very soon. (And bring your luggage!)”
Any bets on how long this will last?
