Add AirTran to the charging for first bag's list...

AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings Inc., said Wednesday that the airline will begin to charge its customers $15 for their first checked bag when traveling on or after Dec. 5.
The new fee will not apply to customers who purchased tickets through Nov. 11.
The airline will continue to charge $25 for a second checked bag and $50 for each additional bag.
AirTran said business-class travelers and "elite" members of its rewards program will be exempt from the first-bag charges, and will continue to be exempt from second-bag charges.

I don't even know what to say anymore... I think that just leaves Hawaiian, Alaska, SouthWest and JetBlue.

It looks like my theory is correct with airline management. THeir philosophy is if 1 airline sucks than we can suck as well .
