Whittle your load, or prepare to pay a fine. Airlines are starting to charge travelers who check more than one bag. The policy has been standard in Europe, but it’s just starting to come stateside. Beginning May 5, United Airlines, Northwest Airlines and US Airways plan to charge passengers an extra $50 roundtrip to check a second bag. Passengers will face charges of up to $100 to check three or more bags and $50-$200 for overweight (more than 50 lbs.) bags.
