AirAsia is not Alone

Recently, AirAsia announced that starting from 21 April 2007, checked baggage handling fee will be imposed on each checked in baggage. The main reason for imposing the fee is due to rising fuel cost.

Starting 5 May 2008, five of the seven major US Airlines (Continental, Delta, Northwest, United, and US Air) plan to charge most customers $25 each way to check a second bag. The difference with AirAsia is that they will not impose any charge for the first checked in bag.
