United Airlines Hike Checked Baggage Charges By $5 PDF Print E-mail


The first checked bag is now $35 each way, the second, $45. You can skip the increase by prepaying in advance. The fees are $30 and $40 if paid at any time before online check-in.The increase takes effect for travel beginning March 6.

The increase covers the U.S. on short flights to the Caribbean and Latin America. No-frills airlines including Spirit, Frontier and Allegiant already charge varying prices for checked (and carry-on) bags, depending when you purchase them and when you fly. Solution: Fly without the big bulky bags. Get all your gear into a carry-on plus wear a jacket with many large pockets.
