Check in baggage cost - just pay when you check in

Email from United Airlines....

Before your next trip with us, we would like you to know about changes to our checked baggage policy and revised fees for excess, overweight, oversized baggage and special items, effective for travel on or after August 18, 2008.

If you purchase a United Economy® ticket on or after June 13, 2008 for travel on or after August 18, 2008, a $15 service fee will apply, each way, to check your first piece of baggage. This fee applies to travel within the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.

As previously announced, a $25 fee will apply to check a second bag when flying on a ticket purchased on or after February 4, 2008. Please refer to the chart below to see which checked baggage fees may apply to you.

Checked baggage fees summary
If you purchased tickets... and are traveling... the following fees apply to check bags
First bag Second bag
Before February 4, 2008 Anytime $0 $0
Between February 4, 2008 and June 12, 2008 Anytime $0 $25
On or after June 13, 2008 Between June 13, 2008 and August 17, 2008 $0 $25
On or after June 13, 2008 On or after August 18, 2008 $15 $25


We would like to remind you that additional baggage fees apply to check more than two bags, or if any bags are oversized, overweight and/or considered special items. These fees are also changing and the revised fees will apply to tickets purchased on or after June 13, 2008 for travel on or after August 18, 2008. Please visit the Oversized, overweight and excess baggage and Special items sections on united.com for details on these fees.

You will be exempt from the first and second checked bag service fees if you are:
traveling in United First® or United Business®
traveling on the same reservation as a Global ServicesSM, Mileage Plus® 1K®, Premier Executive®, Premier® or Premier Associate® member or Star Alliance® Gold or Silver member
military personnel traveling on orders
To help facilitate a speedy check-in for you, we are working on a convenient option of pre-paying for checked baggage fees when checking in online with bags, using EasyCheck-in OnlineSM. We will provide more information on the availability of this functionality later in the year.




I am going to just board the plane in a fat suit stuffed with all my clothes, etc. to get around this issue.

If I can't carry it, I leave it behind. I can take a week's worth of clothes in a 22" rollaboard and I have pretty big clothes. Most people carry stuff they never use.

I've got a much better solution - just fly Southwest - they still give you free snacks - even peanuts.
