Southwest to increase fees

Fee changes are expected from Southwest Airlines.

A big hub here in Baltimore, Southwest fees for early check-in and oversized bags will go up.

Currently, an overweight bag costs $50. That fee is expected to rise to $100 per bag. Early check-in fees are expected to increase from $10 to $12.50.

There will also be a "no show fee" for passengers who fail to cancel tickets before flights.

AirTran, a Southwest subsidiary, will also raise its fee for checked bags from $25 to $30.
