ATLANTA — Delta Air Lines is joining two rivals in raising fees to check a bag on a flight within the United States.
Delta on Wednesday posted new fees of $30 for checking a first bag and $40 for a second bag — increasing the previous fees by $5 each.
Southwest Airlines lets passengers check up to two bags free.
Airlines have been pulling in more revenue from extra charges for several years. Last year, U.S. carriers raised $7.4 billion from fees on checked bags and ticket changes, led by American, Delta and United.
