A major air carrier is introducing a new baggage fee. Continental says it will begin charging some coach passengers a $15 fee for the first checked bag.

The new fee matches those recently imposed by American and other major airlines to offset fuel costs.

Continental's new baggage fee is for travel starting on October 7 in the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.
