NEW YORK (AP) — You've already paid $15, $20, even $35 to check your bag on a flight. Then the airline loses it. You don't even get your money back.
The government wants to change that, tackling two of the biggest complaints about the air travel industry — poor service and the explosion of fees — at once. Major airlines, which collect $3.3 billion in bag fees each year, are opposed.
The airlines charge $15 to $35 to check a bag, $20 to $45 to check a second and more for the third and beyond. Most airlines won't provide a refund, even if it takes days to return a passenger's suitcase. They say the rule would raise prices for everyone.
