Westjet introduces checked bag fees
Hopefully this will reduce fly-to cruise travel. WestJet (WS) introduce a $25 fee for the 1st checked bag for anyone flying on the cheapest (Econo) ticket.
WestJet today announced it will charge a $25 fee for a first checked bag on Econo fares for travel within Canada and between Canada and the U.S. The new fee will only apply to bookings made today onward, for travel on or after October 29, 2014. Guests flying to any of WestJet's international destinations including Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe may continue to check a first bag at no charge.
