Long one of the last holdouts of the checked-bag fee era, JetBlue has finally given into the trend of charging customers to check a bag at the airport.

 

The airline changed their policy at the end of June, and it’s in effect now: Passengers wishing to check a bag must now fork over between $20 and $100 for checked bags.

 

Here’s how it works, according to CNN Money: “JetBlue passengers will have three options when buying tickets: Blue, Blue Plus and Blue Flex. It will cost fliers with a Blue fare $20 to check their first bag when checking in online or at a kiosk. If they wait to check-in at the airport counter, the fee goes up to $25. A second checked bag flies for $35. Blue Plus tickets include the cost of a checked bag, while a second checked bag is $35. Blue Flex fares cover the cost of two checked bags. All passengers will pay $100 for a third checked bag.”

 

Checked bag fees have brought in big bucks for airlines. The Department of Transportation reported these fees brought in more than $864 million for U.S.-based airlines in the first quarter of this year alone.

 

Luckily for fans of JetBlue, the company has no plans to cut out its free snacks, soda and TV service.
