This U.S. Airline Is Raising Fees For Checked Bags And More

Bad news for anyone flying JetBlue this summer season – the popular U.S. airline is about to raise fees for checked bags, cancellations, and more.

Some fees will only increase by a few dollars. For example, checking a bag will now cost you $30 rather than $25. However, many of the price hikes are significant.
