Delta and Continental Raise Bag Fees to $25/$35 (or $23/$32 If You Book Online)

Delta and Continental are raising bag fees to $25/$35 for first and second bags ($23/$32 if you buy the bag charge in advance online), though they are waiving fees for Elite members and full-fare ticket holders (and people flying to India, Israel, Brazil, Japan and China).

Airlines are, of course, free to do whatever they want, so bravo for them if they can get the money.  I just find it amusing that the second bag charge now costs more than the $29 JetBlue charges to fly a human in a seat from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau.
