Delta Airlines to charge $25 for 2nd checked bag

Following quickly behind the lead of United & U.S Airways, Delta Airlines announced today they too will begin charging $25 for most passengers checking in a second bag. The fee will start in May, and will not apply to Delta's most frequent travelers or those flying in first class.

Last month United and U.S Airways announced similar moves in an effort to grapple with rising fuel costs affecting the airlines.
