I don’t get it, why are they only charging $10, and why aren’t the other LCC’s charging too? LCC’s are supposed to be “no frills airlines,” while legacies are supposed to be “full service” airlines, although we know how it’s basically the exact opposite in the US. Nonetheless I don’t understand why the struggling LCC’s aren’t charging $25 for the second checked bag, something they could easily get away with. Don’t get me wrong, I hate new fees, but I do want to see them surviving to keep the market competitive, although I’m sure we’ll see some of them dropping like flies in the next few months.
I’m guessing the other LCC’s will match for the most part, be it a $10 or $25 fee.
