The following is a list of new airline fees that kick off just in time for that trip you planned for summer. Who knew a second bag was now a luxury? Airline mergers will soon limit the travel playing field and with diminished competition comes less competitive pricing on fares.

Alaska Airlines and Horizon: $15 to book flights through reservation agents or airport sales desk starting May 21.
