Baggage Fee Disclosure

Under the DOT's baggage fee disclosure law, carriers, agents and tour operators are required to disclose the existence and amount of baggage fees when advertising an airfare or package containing an airfare. 14 CFR 399.85(b). Carriers will be required to provide the specific fees applicable to the itinerary. While agents should also provide the specific fees, if this is not possible, they will be permitted to provide a hyperlink to the specific carrier’s baggage fee webpage.
 
The baggage fee disclosure rule also requires agents to provide the passenger's free baggage allowance and/or the applicable fee for a carry-on bag and the first and second checked bags on the summary page upon completion of a purchase and in any post-purchase emails confirming the purchase. 14 CFR 399.85(c)
