Below, I have compiled a checked baggage fees guide with the luggage fees from the major U.S. airlines for domestic travel, including carry-on bag sizes, fees for each checked bag, and ways to avoid these fees through frequent flyer status or co-branded credit cards.
Southwest Airlines and its “Bags Fly Free” policy are unique in the industry, as every other company charges for checked luggage. Be wary of budget airlines, such as Frontier and Spirit, which may offer low fares but require fees for even carry-on luggage!
The best way to avoid baggage fees is to not check any luggage, but in case you need to, educate yourself about the various policies before flying for smoother travels.
