    Well, it looks like it's time to update our baggage fee chart yet again. You'll pay $30 round-trip to check your first bag, and $50 for the second. There are exceptions to this new fee, and it only applies for travel within the 50 U.S., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada. This is in addition to $50 round-trip for a second bag, and to any overweight or oversized penalties.
