BLOG: Airlines Raise Luggage Fees To Europe

By Jim Donovan: You better pack light if your heading to Europe. Both United/Continental and Delta haved raised the fees they charge to check luggage on trans-Atlantic flights.

You’ll still get to check your first bag for free. But on Delta, a second bag will now cost $60 if checked online or $75 if checked at the airport.

Checking a second bag on United/Continental will cost you $70. What you’ll pay over the next few weeks depends on a few factors:

If you purchased your ticket before June 1, you’ll pay $50. If you purchased your ticket ON or AFTER June 1 but travel BEFORE July 1, you’ll pay $50. If you purchased your ticket ON or AFTER June 1 but travel AFTER July 1, you’ll pay the new fee of $70

Previously, all three airlines had charged $50 for a second checked bag to Europe.

By the way, Delta also is adding bag fees on its flights to Mexico and Central America, instituting a $30 charge to a second checked bag. That had been free prior to the change.
