Continental, Delta Match 2nd bag fee

A bit late posting this one...been out of the country.

Checking in more than one bag will cost you $25 bucks; you can now term it the industry standard. The most recent adopters of the fee are Continental and Delta, but United and U.S Airways were the leaders in implementing it. Northwest announced their bag fee last week, and Dallas-based American Airlines has filed an intent to charge the fee as well. Some elite fliers and those in first class may not be subject to the new fees however.
