Turns out the airlines are making a killing on these fees!
According to a study by Upgraded Points, in the past year, airlines have made over $5 BILLION in baggage charges!
The site found that:
Alaska Airlines increased its baggage revenue by 40%. Sun Country Airlines also saw a massive increase of over 91%. The other carrier with higher-than-average growth was Spirit Airlines.
