JetBlue raises price for fliers to check their bags . . . again

Posted: Updated:

JetBlue is raising the price for fliers to check their bags, again.

The cost for the first bag is going up from $30 to $35, and the cost for the second will cost $45, up from $40.

It's the second time in two years the airline has increased the price for checked bags.

The airline is offering a $5-discount to passengers who add a checked bag online or through its app at least 24 hours before the flight.

The baggage fee will be included in the price for higher-fare travel.

JetBlue credit card holders will also avoid the fee.
