New Fees - Jet Blue is the First
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/16/jetblue ... fares.html
" if you have booked a Blue Basic fare, any carry-on bag brought to the gate (aside from a personal item that fits under the seat in front of you) will incur a fee and need to be checked. The fee is $65 (if it would be your 1st or 2nd checked bag) or $180 (if it’s your 3rd)."

If one airline starts...then the others are sure to follow.
Personally, travelers with so much carry on has been a real irritant for me for a very long time. I have always been p'd that I cannot find overhead space because folks don't want to check their multi bags in and the gate personnel don't do anything about it. I am glad Jet Blue is starting this.
