Fees are subject to change, but we will keep them updated as best we can.
Notes: The above chart does not take oversize or overweight bags into consideration. Just about every airline charges for bags that exceed weight (usually 50 lbs) and size limits (varies by carrier). Also, larger items like strollers, skis or golf clubs may also face an additional fee. More information is available by clicking on any of the airline links, which will take you directly into the baggage policy section of their respective websites.
Also, larger items like strollers, skis or golf clubs may also face an additional fee, so again check with the airline directly. Delta and United accept golf clubs and skis as regular checked baggage as long as its in a suitable case (this means no oversize baggage fees will be assessed, though overweight charges may still apply).
