Budget airlines can be a real money saver (especially if you book with the best budget airlines). Some of the companies, like the new LEVEL with budget flights to Barcelona and Paris, are great to fly on. Others, not so much. But there’s one thing that’s pretty much unavoidable no matter which budget airline you take: baggage fees.
Some people have a lot of baggage, and that can add up. If you’re one of those people, try to avoid any unwanted surprises by checking the different airlines’ fees. These are the most popular domestic budget airlines in the US, ranked by baggage fees.
