Delta Air Lines is hiking its checked baggage fees. Starting today, passengers traveling within the United States will have to pay 23 dollars to check one bag online. That's an increase from 15 dollars. The second bag will cost 32 dollars to check online, up from 25 dollars. The fees will be even higher for travellers who wait to check their luggage at the airport. The price of the first bag has been bumped up to 25 dollars and the price of the second is now 35 dollars. The new fees will only count for tickets purchased after January 4th. First-class passengers, military personnel on deployment and some frequent fliers will be exempt from the fee increase.
