Most airlines charge for checked baggage, but the added fee for airport check in is something new.
It comes as the airline reported its first quarter loss was significantly less than last year. US Airways officials say the company lost $103 million in the quarter that ended March 31, compared to the $237 million loss during the same quarter last year.
"The revenue environment does seem to have bottomed out, which means it isn't getting worse," said US Airways President Scott Kirby. "But there also aren't yet clear signs that it's getting better."
He said vacationers are taking advantage of fare sales, but business travel is still suffering. Business travelers generally pay higher fares and are more profitable for the airlines.
