JetBlue is unique in that its basic fare does not include a carry-on — you can only have a single personal item that fits under the seat in front of you. If you bring something bigger, you will be charged per item starting at $65.

Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines all allow a free carry-on. Southwest allows two checked bags for free in all of its fare classes. United starts charging at $35 for your first checked bag. Delta starts at $30 for your first checked bag.

For example, when booking sample flights with Southwest, we first selected our departure and arrival airports. Then, instead of choosing dates, we selected the low fare calendar to make sure we were getting the best rate.

JetBlue’s website, however, is not as intuitive. With this site, you have to choose your dates then scroll through two months worth of options with only six days displayed at a time.
