Frontier & Hawaiian up their baggage fees

Fares from Washington DC, District of Columbia:

    Ok, so we have some good news and some bad news. The good first? Frontier is reducing their fee for ticket changes to $100 for Economy passengers, down from $150. The new rule covers all tickets issued September 8 and onward.

    And now, the bad news, Frontier is upping fees for checked bags. First checked bags are now $20, while second checked bags are $30. That's only a $5 increase, but still.

    Also getting in on the bag fee action, Hawaiian Airlines wil now charge a $10 fee for the first checked bag on interisland flights. The new rule begins September 14.
