Kayak Works to End the Guessing Game of Hidden Airline Fees
Just a small sample
If you thought that Spirit Air's new carry-on baggage fee makes airline fees confusing, then you should check out this chart!
The "Airline Fees" chart assembled by Kayak.com might seem like a just a bunch of numbers and airlines, but next time you book a flight and wonder exactly how much you'll be paying in hidden fees, it'll be a lifesaver. The chart is actually the best we've seen of fee charts, and it even allows you to filter the long list by specific airlines. For instance, if you're trying to decide between Southwest and Spirit, filter the list down to the two and you'll see that Spirit wants to charge you for both carry-on and checked baggage and Southwest lets you go free on both accounts (and they'll even throw in a small snack).
Combine this feature with Kayak's iPhone app guide to checked baggage fees, and they're a pretty good one-stop shop for both airline tickets and the consumer information behind them. Now all Kayak has to do is add a column for the eventual spread of carry-on baggage fees, but lord god we hope it doesn't come to that.
