Baggage Policy

We have gathered the airline fee info you see below to make it as easy as possible for you to understand what airlines will charge you for. Although we do our best to keep this information as up-to-date as possible, please know that this table may not include every fee and may not be 100% accurate. Please always be sure to check the airline websites to verify up-to-date final airline fees before making your purchase. If your flight is operated by a different airline, usually it is best to check with the airline that issued your ticket.

Airline fees vary often and may even depend on seat assignment, destination, military status, frequent flier status and other exceptions. There are additional fees for overweight or oversized luggage. Most of the information gathered here will be for economy-class flights, one-way. Have a great trip!
