Southwest Airlines To Purchase Airtran

Southwest Airlines says it will be dropping bag fees from its new airline. 

The airline says it will happen when it purchases Airtran for $1.4 billion dollars in 2012.  While the fees disappear, experts believe it will cost more to travel in the northeast, but airline fare wars may also disappear.
