You’ll soon pay more to check a bag or change a flight on Alaska Airlines .
For tickets purchased on or after Oct. 30, the fee for checking a suitcase will increase to $25 for each of the first two bags (up from $20 per bag) and $75 for the third bag (currently $25). However, elite-level frequent fliers still get free checked bags.
If you change your flight less than 60 days before departure, you’ll have to pay $125. (The current change fee is $75 to $100, except for first-class and elite frequent fliers for whom it’s free.) However, unlimited flight changes will be allowed for free for all classes of ticket-holders until 60 days prior to departure.
So if you want to save a bit of money, buy a ticket before Oct. 30. Otherwise, be prepared to pay more.
