There's just no end in sight.
Citing high fuel costs, Delta says it will kick up the fee to check a second bag from $25 to $50 for most domestic passengers.
The carrier says it will also boost levies on domestic and international flights for items that require special handling such as surfboards or ski equipment.
Even the lowliest of domestic passengers will still be allowed to check a first bag free, and First Class, BusinessElite, and Medallion customers can check up to three bags at no charge. Travelers on international flights may continue checking a first and second bag at no charge.
