For your convenience we have listed below the major carriers with direct links to their websites' baggage policy pages. It is important to check your carrier's policy before your flight so that you will know what to expect in fees and allowances.
You'll find most baggage fees do not apply to first and business class, elite status frequent flyer ticket holders, and some other full-fare tickets; however this being the airline industry, things change at a moment's notice. You'll also want to become a savvy packer and learn to travel light, as additional fees are being imposed for luggage deemed "heavy".
Save the airline fees and take the "lug" out of luggage by shipping ahead.
