Delta tops U.S. airlines for fees
U.S. airlines collected more than $4.3 billion in fees for checking baggage and changing tickets so far this year.
New data from the Transportation Department on Monday shows that Delta Air Lines collected the most, hauling in $1.26 billion in fees so far this year. That's more than the $922 million collected by United Continental Holdings, which is bigger than Delta by traffic volume.
Travelers paid more than $784 million for baggage and ticket changes to American Airlines.
Southwest Airlines Co. does not charge to check the first two bags. But it has still collected $22.5 million in baggage fees this year for additional luggage.
