Hawaiian Airlines raises bag fees

HONOLULU — Hawaiian Airlines announced the price to check first and second bags on its flights between North America and Hawaii is rising by $5, to $30 and $40, respectively.

Hawaiian’s checked bag fee for neighbor island flying remains unchanged, as do discounts and complimentary allowances for HawaiianMiles members. Guests flying internationally on Hawaiian may still check two bags at no charge.

Hawaiian’s current North America bag fees, which were last revised in 2012, will remain in place for guests traveling on tickets purchased through Monday.

    Nothing like getting charged $70 for two bags on a 20 minute flight.

    High baggage fees have created slow boarding and stuffed overhead bins as people bring bigger and bigger backpacks, carry-on bags, purses, shopping bags, etc. into the plane. Hurry up and get here, Southwest Airlines–I hope you keep the policy of no baggage fees!
