Just about every other day it seems another airline is unveiling a new fee for checked bags (not to mention drinks, snacks, etc.), and it’s getting a little hard to keep them all straight.

Well, the fine folks at Orbitz have put together a simple, easy-to-read chart to help make it easier to figure out which airlines charge what, and when.

The chart in our FAQ section will be updated regularly. But given how quickly these policies are changing, it’s a good idea to double-check at the airline’s Web site. And remember, these fees are not included in airfares.
