Extra bag charges on int'l Delta flights

April 22, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Just in time for the busy summer vacation season, an international trip on Delta Airlines could cost passengers a bit more. On Tuesday, the struggling airline announced it will begin charging a $50 fee to check a second bag on international flights, starting July 1.

The announcement came on the same day that Delta reported a $794 million combined net loss for the first quarter.

The Atlanta-based airline merged with Northwest Airlines in October to become the country's biggest carrier.

Delta is the only U.S. carrier to charge a fee for a second bag on international flights. British Airways also charges passengers for a second bag on international routes.

Delta expects the new fee to generate $100 million each year.
