Luggage Prices for Major Airlines

Have you ever bought a plane ticket thinking you got a great deal but then ended up paying double what you thought because you had to pay extra for baggage? I’ve been there. I feel your pain.

One time I bought a plane ticket through Frontier Airlines for $25 but the luggage wasn’t included so I got charged another $30 for the carry on. Why would they charge more for the luggage than the plane ticket??

They want your money. 
Due to this inconvenience, I’ve decided to round up all the prices for carry on and checked baggage fees for popular airlines so you don’t have to ever go through that horrible process again.
