Extra fees for checked bags on JetBlue this summer

JetBlue is following suit with other major carriers, including United and American Airlines, in introducing dynamic pricing for checked bag fees. This means that passengers traveling during peak seasons will incur an additional cost of $5 for their first checked bag and $10 for a second bag. The airline’s website now provides information on how prices for checked bags vary depending on the time of year, destination, and whether bags are included at booking.

Peak seasons for increased checked bag fees include dates in April and the summer months, as well as around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Additionally, fees are higher for transatlantic flights compared to domestic routes. Passengers who forget to add checked baggage 24 hours before a flight will incur an extra $10 charge on domestic flights.

Dynamic pricing for ancillary fees like checked baggage is more commonly seen among European budget airlines such as easyJet and Ryanair. These companies vary checked bag fees depending on factors such as route, flight, and time of booking. This pricing model enables airlines to adjust fees based on demand and maximize revenue. JetBlue’s adoption of dynamic pricing for checked bags reflects a growing trend in the airline industry towards more flexible pricing structures.
