Delta announced an increase for checked baggage on domestic flights. For tickets purchased after January 5th for travel beginning January 10th and beyond, it will now cost you $23 for the first bag and $32 for the second – that is a whopping 53% increase for the first bag.

Plus there is the added fee if you don’t prepay online. From Delta’s website:

Effective for tickets purchased on or after January 5, 2010, for travel on or after January 12, 2010, customers who check in and pay bag fees at an airport kiosk or with an agent will incur a $2 surcharge for the first and a $3 surcharge for the second checked bag

Fees continue to be waived for SkyMiles Medallion Members and passengers purchasing full Y or first class fares.
