A Staggering Look at Baggage Fees [Infographic!] via @theHipmunk

Has anyone else noticed rising baggage fees over the last few years? We at hipmunk thought we'd take a closer look at this growing nuisance and turned to the fabulous Shaun Sanders, who produced a quite popular wallpaper remixing our mascot into an Internet-famous shark hunting kayaker photo.

We're hoping for this to be the first of many hipmunk infographics, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list (below) and subscribe to this blog so you don't miss a single one of them!

Tip of the hat to our own resident Chief Scientist, Dr. Chris Slowe, superfan of Edward Tufte, for helping us get it just right. 

Steal this image. And if you're so inclined, the super high-rez version makes for a great poster. We also got some great feedback from Sheel Mohnot in the comments, who had a suggestion for a fabulous sequel that highlights baggage fees as a percentage of overall revenue.
