Hawaiian Airlines will increase baggage service fees for checked luggage on interisland flights. The fee for the first piece of checked luggage will increase from $10 to $17, effective September 1, 2011. All other baggage fees for travel on Hawaiian remain unchanged.

Exempt from the change are members of Hawaiian’s Premier, Pualani Gold and Pualani Platinum clubs, as well as corporate members, first class travelers, and active U.S. military personnel traveling on government fares. Also exempt are car seats, infant carriers, or strollers when customers are traveling with a child; and wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, and other personal devices used for assistance.

Company officials say the increasing costs of operation made the adjustment unavoidable.  It is the first change implemented by the company for interisland baggage since September 2009.

    Mentioning that it is the first change since Sept. 2009 does not make it any better.
